I created this lesson to help my classes get to grips with inference in history and the use of artefacts. Many young students get stuck at the idea that we can never know what happened in the past because no one alive was there to be our witnesses.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for 18 years and I love it! I specialise in History with experience of English, Geography, Religious Studies and Humanities. Having been a Head of Department, an advanced lead teacher in Humanities, a deputy head in a SEMH school and good old classroom based history teacher I enjoy supporting students and staff alike. I like all things history and personalise my students historical studies. So I LOVE Local History! (Maybe its because I'm nosey?) Here's an article I had published in national journal TEACHING HISTORY on my Local History project. http://www.history.org.uk/resources/secondary_resource_6498.html It might give you taste of how I like to teach...

MY TEACHING STYLE

All sorts. Whatever works for the students in front of me. From interactive and independent group work to discussion and lecture. Either way I want the students to be working harder than their teacher. :0)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

WINNER: Jamie Oliver and YouTube's Dream Teacher in History 2011. http://mshughesteaches.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/stalins-rise-to-power.html http://www.agent4change.net/events/competition/894

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Honours degree in in History. PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) from the Institute of Education, University of London. Lead Professional Certification for Middle Leader in Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I aim to create engaging, interesting and challenging lessons for my students. I am a firm believer that a real education should develop young people holistically and lead them to independence and help them on the path to a productive and happy life. If you want to get information and freebies first you can follow me on facebook and instagram. For myself I love gardening (weather permitting) and reading (when my marking lets me!) as well as getting crafty on the sewing machine. Next stop, camper van curtains!
