Planning new GCSE history course?

Hi,

Have been doing a lot of thinking about comparative GCSE courses and the role of controlled assignment. Have also been working with some publishers. Interesting times ahead. Probably worth spending time working out whether the criteria you used when making earlier decisions about GCSE history still hold good. With some boards favourite topics have disappeared or length of topic extended. Do you trust the controlled assignment supplied by the board or would you go for a spec where there is at least choice. Let me know your thoughts. On my website, www.keystagehistory.co.uk I have uploaded a large number of files with succinct summaries of each spec and what to look for. Maybe useful as trawling though the 5-70 pages of spec is a nightmare I wouldn’t wish on anyone ! neil
