  1. Hi all,
    I am an experienced teacher of RE who has just landed a job that involves teaching KS3 Geography and History. In the upper school I will be teaching philosophy which I am fine with. I am really excited about teaching the other subjects but must admit I am not sure where to start with Geography and History....add to this the fact that I teach in Scotland and for the first time will be grappling with the English National Curriculum!
    So, my question is this: what (friendly!) advice would you give someone in my position with regards to resources, web links, tips etc. I am not even sure if there are lesson plans etc in place in the department I will be going to (I start in September), so I have the next 7 months to fumble my way into these subjects.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. I suspect you may already be aware of this site, but www.schoolhistory.co.uk should be of great use. The History Teachers Forum is a fund of knowledge, there are also resources available and the home page has links to a number of other sites run by History teachers.
    Hope that this helps; welcome to History and the English National Curriculum (for a limited period only until Mr. Gove changes it all).

     
  4. Thank you! I will check out the website. I have been buying old text books on Amazon and I am making every effort to brush up on my knowledge!! The advice is much appreciated - so thanks again![​IMG]
