Enrichment is everything over and beyond usual classroom lessons. There are so many ways we can enrich the historical education of students. For example, we might set up an e-twinning project online with a school overseas and share learning about the end of the Cold War; or we might travel to the Western Front or more locally to learn on-site; or we might set up a joint history and DT project about the purpose and construction of castles. There are many providers of historical education who can help us, and increasingly some superb online resources to bring historical exhibitions, archives and collections into school. There are also many examples of excellent practice among the history teaching community nationwide and beyond. You will find practical examples of effective practice in Teaching History articles, as part of briefing and guidance elsewhere on the site and in Quality Mark case studies. The HA can also put you directly in touch with examples of projects that you may be able to adapt to meet the needs of your students. In this section we break the topic of enrichment into three separate aspects: visits, liaising with others and cross-curricular.
