Significant societies at KS3 outstanding lessons
As part of the 2014 history NC requirement to teach a significant issue or society. Several options are offered by the DfE but you are not bound by these of course. Indeed, I would argue that this is a real opportunity to go for something you really feel passionate about teaching.
Whilst I understand the pressures on history teachers at the moment to implement new AS and A2 this year, and new GCSE next, it would be a great shame if this KS3 option was not given really careful thought. For two in three students this will be their last experience of history. I will be posting a list of the significant society topics we intend to resource, alongside India, early in 2016.
