London History Forum Keynote 2019

Will Bailey-Watson, last updated: 18th July 2019


The film below was taken at the London History Forum: Widening Perspectives which took place on Thursday 25 April 2019 at the UCL Institute of Education and features Will Bailey-Watson (subject lead for PGCE History at the University of Reading).

The renewed emphasis on curriculum in many schools is giving history teachers a chance to rethink and reshape their curriculums at all age groups. But how many departments and teachers are looking to go beyond a fairly chronological, canonical structure and start asking new questions about the possibilities of a history curriculum? In this keynote session Will shares his thoughts reflecting on classroom experience and the literature of others, and suggest some ways that more perspectives, more voices and wider horizons might form part of a coherent, powerful history curriculum at any key stage.
