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.

HA webinars this autumn

Check the list below and register for the webinars that you would like to participate in this autumn and keep checking for new webinars coming up throughout the year. If you have suggestions of webinars that you’d like us to develop, please email Mel Jones on melanie.jones@history.org.uk  

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

Wednesday 5 December, 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
Open to: all

The Civil Rights Movement in America: the Government, the Leaders and the Grass-roots

Thursday 6 December, 4-5pm

Hillary Clinton - “Dr. King’s dream began to be realized when President Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act. It took a president to get it done.”

Clayborne Carson - “If King had never lived, the black struggle would have followed a course of development similar to the one it did. The Montgomery bus boycott would have occurred, because King did not initiate it. Black students would probably have rebelled – even without him as a role model – for they had sources of tactical and ideological inspiration besides King”.

In this webinar, Professor Tony Badger, President of the Historical Association, will weigh up the role of the federal government, the leadership of the civil rights movement and the thousands of grass-roots activists in the successes and failures of the civil rights movement.
