What is history? is a set of eight lessons for year 7 students, designed to introduce them to the concepts underpinning history and to its importance.
Each lesson addresses a different concept – chronology, enquiry, evidence, causation, change, diversity, significance and interpretation – and comprises a starter, several development activities and a plenary. Suggestions for differentiation, extension tasks and homework tasks are also included.
Tasks include role-play, source analysis, debate tasks, group discussion and living graphs.
