Ferguson’s miracle history lesson or shameless plug?

Just read Niall Ferguson’s lesson plan on Guardian Teacher Network site -someone has to. As predicted it describes a GCSE lesson of the future which will be based around the use of his e-book. That’s all you need to know really. The topic chosen realtes to his recent book and TV series ( required reading for all schools , no doubt), and the students work on different Killer Apps from ( you guessed it),- his new book. I don’t really know why this article was written but thenIi realised why. With his tongue so firmly in his cheek he couldn’t have spoken a word, and with such blatant self-publicity, and even he would not have stopped us wondering whether we were watching the programme itself or the adverts! I wasted 10 minutes of my life reading lesson plan to stop you wasting 10 minutes of your’s.
