Readings for Secondary School History PGCE interview
Posted 05 February 2012 - 03:37 PM
I was therefore wondering if anyone had any suggestions for books to read before my next interview.
The books that I have read up to now are -
Neil Smith, The History Teachers Handbook (2010)
Julia Murphy 100 + Ideas for Teaching History (2007)
I also been reading every day through the education page on BBC News and buying the TES magazine for a number of weeks.
Any help would be appreciated

Reading wise - join the Historical Association and you can then access the full archive of "Teaching History" which is great.

I have bookmarked the websites that you have advised and looked through them. They both look very good and the exact thing I was looking for.
I have already gained about a week of Secondary School experience and I totally agree it is the most important thing. I have now also been lucky enough to be accepted onto a course where I have a week or two on placement in Leicester.
I will hopefully get accepted onto a PGCE this year but if not I am hoping I can gain more experience and apply again. One of my thoughts is convincing a local high school to let me set up a dinner time of after school history club for KS3 pupils.
