New, Novice or Nervous?

The quick guide to the ‘no-quick-fix’

'New, Novice or Nervous?' is a regular feature in Teaching History (TH) designed to help new teachers, or those new to history, to locate key articles written about essential aspects of teaching and learning. 

Every problem new teachers are wrestling with is a problem other teachers have wrestled with too. Quick fixes don’t exist. But in others’ writing, you’ll find something better: conversations in which history teachers have debated or tackled your problems – conversations which any history teacher can join. If you have a problem you would like to see addressed please email: teachinghistory@history.org.uk
