Inclusion for key stage 3 history
There is not enough good advice on teaching history to pupils with Special Educational Needs. It has almost been assumed that teachers in mainstream schools would automatically know how to teach pupils who previously might have been taught in a Special School. My experience suggests that teachers need more support in this area, and not just on a theoretical level. Having worked alongside colleagues in special schools for 18 years I have developed a detailed understanding of what works and what does not. I have learned a lot from excellent colleagues who have willingly shared their outstanding practice with me and have allowed it to feature on this site.
