New HA CPD Webinars

By Mel Jones

You told us in our member surveys that you wanted more webinars and we listened! We know that it's not easy for teachers to get out of school or have budgets to afford a plentiful supply of CPD.

We also know how hard it is to find good subject-specific CPD locally. That’s the beauty of the webinar – it doesn’t matter where you are; you and your colleagues can benefit from the best subject-specific CPD.

The Americas at Key Stage 2: History, Geography and the end of the world 

Wednesday 30 January, 4-5pm

Using the example of the Maya and South/Central America, this webinar will explore how careful choice of content in one subject can extend what your pupils will achieve in another. It will offer some practical suggestions on how you might combine a Key Stage 2 history 'non-European study' of the Maya with the geography of the Americas into a meaningful scheme of work.  It will use enquiry learning, critical thinking and stories to explore past and present issues around resource use in a study of the Maya and Central America.

Cost: £50 HA member, £65 non-member 
Course leader: Alf Wilkinson and Ben Ballin

It will cover language, contexts, and methodologies which are all vital for getting to grips with approaching a new and important topic to produce a more diverse history curriculum. The webinar will be useful background for anyone considering how to diversify their teaching, particularly at Key Stage 3 and A-level.
