Remember Me

The Power of Two

This guidance is based on Donald Cumming and Dan Lyndon’s workshop at the 2012 SHP Conference: The Power of Two.

Donald and Dan teach in differentschools in Yorkshire and London, but a conversation in the bar at a previous SHP Conference led to creative collaboration between Year 8 students in their two schools.

Their guidance focuses on:

  1. Students’ use of blogging to pursue an enquiry on the life and significance of Olaudah Equiano
  2. Peer assessment between students from different schools
  3. The use of real contexts for students’ learning

Donald and Dan’s workshop was the focus of
a Triumphs Show in Teaching History, 148 (September, 2012).

We are grateful to the Historical Association for providing this resource.
