There's a fairly good range of ideas for future seminars on this thread already. If anyone would like to put themselves forward for leading any of these we can make a start on getting the spring term timetable sorted out, ideally we'll have a draft of the timetable for that done by mid November to allow us time to do any tweaking. Below are some of the ideas already mentioned, feel free to suggest alternatives. If you're interested in leading a Seminar either post your suggestion here or send it via PM / e-mail to me or any of the admin team.

1. OFSTED and the inspection of History - tips for success?

2. How to improve GCSE source skills - evaluation etc....

3. Raising Attainment at Key Stage 3

4. Reliability and usefulness

5. Working effectively with other subjects

6. Databases and spreadsheets in history lessons

7. Teaching History in the USA

8. Historiography

9. Teaching AS / A2 / 16+ lessons effectively

10. How history teaching has changed over the last 20 years - for better or for worse?

11. The effectiveness of ICT in history - where's the proof?

12. Differentiation, when and how?

13. Effective Stress Management?'

14. How to be a better Head of Department (or/and Faculty)

Edited to include new suggestions.

'Differentiation, when and how' is a skill many teachers wuld perhaps like to exchange ideas about.

6. Databases and spreadsheets in history lessons

With my KS3 ICT hat on, this might be better split into two separate ones, perhaps even with a focus on modelling and data handling instead. The KS3 ICT strategy has given lots of materials to help with this. Lots than can be easily done and it's a major area where history can lead a school to effective ICT, numeracy and (most importantly) history!

I think we should also have one on:

"The effectiveness of ICT in history - where's the proof?"

2. How to improve GCSE source skills - evaluation etc....

and

4. Reliability and usefulness

Sorry but aren't these 2 essentially the same thing?

What about:

'Effective Stress Management?'

'How to be a better Head of Department' (or/and Faculty)

The possibly are the same, not my own suggestions. Personally i'd be quite happy to see a seminar on the way that the usefulness and reliability of sources is taught effectively in KS3, which would be somewhat different to a KS4 Seminar on Source Skills.

Have we any volunteers for any of these semiar titles??? All good and well suggesting titles but at the moment there's nobody to set them off!

OK Point taken though I think then that it might be wiser not to have both in the same term's programme.

I'd be prepared to do one from 2 or 4 or 9.

2 suggestions:

1. How relevant is history within the national curriculum?

2. History or Geography - one has to go! The case for History.....


Sorry I'm not that creative -
