Triumphs Show

Celebrating and sharing teaching successes

Triumphs Show is a regular Teaching History feature which offers a quick way for teachers to celebrate their successes and share inspirational ideas with one another. While the ideas are always explained in sufficient depth for others to be able to take them forward in their own practice, the simple format allows teachers to present individual activities or one-off events that have had a particular impact on their students.
