Was good. Reassuring confirmation that a lot I did last year, when first teaching this topic, was on the mark. But also lots of good, new ideas for teaching and assessing it, but especially in breaking down the vastness and complexity of the topic into more manageable parts.

Comprehensive explanation of the history topic with explicit focus on the demands of the syllabus – focus on assessment / evaluation rather than narrative. Great advice on writing skills, teaching / modelling.
