Teaching History

Description

Krishnan Guru-Murthy presents a lively debate pitting a progressive model of teaching history against a traditional approach.

The programme raises the questions of how we should teach history. Should the focus be on discrete subject teaching of our chronological history, or is a thematic, cross-curriculum, and empathetic approach better?

Shadow Minister for Schools, Nick Gibb MP; Historian, Lisa Hilton; ASCL Deputy General Secretary, Martin Ward; History Teacher, Leslee Wills; and DCSF Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Iain Wright MP, make up the panel, and take questions from a live audience.

Part of the series: The Big Debate
