Developing historical knowledge and understanding in teaching about genocide

This issue's problem: Susie Cook is struggling to sustain an emphasis on developing historical knowledge and understanding in teaching about genocide.

Susie Cook worked for nearly ten years as a web designer before deciding to move into teaching. Once she had secured her place on the programme she spent several months working as a Teaching Assistant which has given her considerable confidence in working with young people. However, her subject knowledge in relation to many areas of the school's history curriculum is quite weak, partly because of the length of time since she has engaged seriously with historical study, and partly because of the almost exclusive focus of her degree on the early modern period of British and European history. This means she is struggling both with medieval history in Year 7 and with many of the topics taught in Year 9 and at GCSE.
