Research & Guidance

Great teaching and learning is underpinned and informed by research and guidance. Not only in the form of large academic research projects, or reports from nationally and internationally recognised organisations, but also on a smaller scale by hubs of schools and individual teachers.  As the subject association for history, the Historical Association plays a vital role in history education research; both as a research organisation through our annual surveys, but also for individual teacher research through our journals. The Historical Association is a dissemination hub and the first port of call for those looking to locate history education research. In this section you will find research and guidance split into easy to find areas.
