Whilst there were some helpful scaffolds, I found the course quite basic and outdated.

This provided structured examples on how to teach source analysis methodically using ADAMENT method

the language does not match with the new stage 6 syllabus which we should be preparing students for.
Think this should be directed more towards beginning / new to history teachers

This was a good course. The first 2 modules were full of good insights and helpful tips. A very helpful overview of necessary skills in history. Module 4 was also very helpful, with great advice for writing essays in history and a variety of annotated work samples. These modules made the course worth the time. Module 3 though, provided limited teaching guidance. Overall, a helpful course which I’m glad I worked through.

I thought this course was really good and just helped in re strengthening work I am already doing. It provided me with greater reassurance that I am doing the right thing with teaching my students to analyse sources.

The course content was relevant to me, as a person who is a trained English/LOTE teacher, teaching history. I wanted to gain a better understanding of how to analyse sources, how to write historical essays (especially the ways in which these differ from English essays) and how to write and mark assessment tasks.

Modules 1, 2, and 3 were helpful in terms of explaining different historical terminology, and giving good examples of source analysis and activities to complete with my class.
