History and the e-Baccalaureate ; latest news

So, its now official what Gove understands by the term ‘humanities’ subjects. He has just published his list of approved GCSE subjects. Here they are:


   GCSE in History

• GCSE in Ancient History

• GCSE in Geography

• Cambridge International Certificate in History

• Cambridge International Certificate in Geography

• CIE legacy iGCSE in History

• CIE legacy iGCSE in Geography

How interesting that we now have Ancient History rather than Classical Civilization. I wonder what the uptake will be? It does give yet another indication of Gove’s cast of mind. Roll on his version of the History curriculum!!
