Teaching GCSE History: Crime and Punishment

It is pleasing to see that this topic has been included as a thematic study in the 2016 GCSE course by some exam boards, at least. The outstanding lessons here mostly relate to the old SHP courses but will be up-dated to include more recent studies. Not only are local sources put to good effect, there is also a wide range of imaginative approaches reflecting different learning styles. So if you want to test hypotheses about transportation, have a fun kinaesthetic lesson on highwaymen or an Ian Dawson-inspired overview then you’ll find plenty to stimulate your interest.
