Teaching about Historical Change and Continuity


This guidance is based on Christine Counsell’s workshop at the 2008 SHP Conference: Making meaning out of change, continuity and diversity. The workshop focussed on three main questions in relation to change and continuity:

1. What makes for a meaningful and motivating enquiry into change and continuity?

2. How can we balance abstract analysis of speed and pace of change with an exploration of with an exploration of how change and continuity were experienced at the time?

3. What kinds of analysis and reflection do we want pupils to engage in as they wrestle with an enquiry question about change and continuity?

The resources provides a range of practical strategies to address these issues.
