HA Webinar: But Miss I don’t know what to write, or even how to start!

Effective oracy in the secondary history classroom

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 29th February 2024

Time: 4pm - 5pm

Venue: Zoom

Description: The transition from GCSE to A-level is a big one and sixth-form students often struggle with a variety of different challenges. This session looks at the problems that many experience as they attempt to master the important subject-specific and life skills of being able to express their thoughts and ideas fluently and coherently in the written form. The session will call on research from different disciplines: from neuroscience, that looks at the important developmental processes in the brain that all adolescents will be enduring; cognitive psychology that looks at the processes involved in just a simple writing task; social psychology that will focus on the different challenges that adolescents – particularly at sixth-form level – have to face, and finally social learning theorists that examine the tensions that are inherent in the study of history as a discipline in its own right. This session will end with a reminder that it is often during sixth-form studies that some learning disabilities are discovered – or exacerbated – ADHD, OCD, ASD as well as the problems faced by students who live with dyslexia, dyspraxia and dysgraphia among other learning difficulties.
