Discussion in 'History' started by pangar, Mar 5, 2012.

  1. I am currently employed by an ASD provision which is dilly-dallying about registering with OCR. Not many of the students are capable of tackling GCSE history but more may follow in the near future. What I am uncertain about in the interim is what exactly to teach the students and which choices to offer them for a depth study. If any colleagues with a firm handle on the various permutations of the syllabus in question can offer me any advise on this account then I would be extremely grateful.
    I should say that I am keen to get this right now as it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that the service may not progress any of the students I am working with if they fail to hit the desired marks, and by that I mean failing to enter them for the assessments and exams in due course!
  2. USA, 1919-41. Much the simplest to grasp. By far.
  3. I agree - USA is very straightforward. Also be aware that for the International Relations section you only need to teach one of the two units - either Inter-War or Cold War - students don't need to learn both to complete the exam. Unfortunately, both are rather 'politics' based and not that straightforward, although Inter-war might be the easier of the two.
