“There aren’t enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe SHP15”
…was how one teacher summed last year’s SHP conference.
The 2016 SHP Conference promises its usual mix of enjoyment, enrichment and inspiration. This year, there will a strong focus on helping you to prepare for the new GCSE, including sessions specifically aimed at all the new GCSE specs. There will also be lots of ideas to engage, challenge and assess the progress of your Key Stage 3 and A level students.
The conference includes six plenary sessions packed with ideas and inspiration for taking forward history in your school:
• ‘Once upon a time’: Embracing the power of narrative in the history classroom Richard Kennett
• Learning lessons from a past they don’t know or understand: students’ experience of Holocaust education Paul Salmons
• Handling complexity and widening horizons – without losing sight of the students Katharine Burn and Jason Todd
• Patriotism and the Great War Ian Luff
• History Around Us: Engaging students with the historic environment Carenza Lewis
With over 30 workshops led by some of the country’s most inspiring and creative history educators, the SHP conference is the largest, and most varied conference for secondary history teachers. You’ll be able to select five workshops ensuring that you take away a wealth of ideas and resources to take forward history in your school.
SHP’s conference fringe includes a lively Teachmeet and a range of other sessions from resource-providers. The one-stop resources exhibition provides a great opportunity to check out some great new resources, and to talk to exhibitors.
The SHP Conference is remarkable value for money.
