Are you a history teacher looking for some creative inspiration? Does exam pressure mean that you're unable to think about your teaching and that your pupils aren't able to enjoy learning?

History is a vitally important subject which is undergoing a crisis in schools, with many young people struggling to understand its significance. In this book, Chapman and Cooper underline the importance and power of constructivist history pedagogy, showing how it can help teachers structure teaching and learning around disciplined historical enquiry, making it real for pupils. The chapters chronologically cover the curriculum from 11-19 and contain case studies, students' and teachers' voices and examples of work, bringing theories and research about learning to life.

Constructing History 11-19 offers teachers the space to reflect professionally on, modify and develop their own practice, showing them how to develop independent enquiry and reflective learning in the pupils. The book comes with a companion website containing additional examples of teaching and learning, and relevant web links.
