History Teaching Masterclass - Every Student Can Write Historically! - 24 Aug 21

|2.05 pm – 2.50 pm||Session 1:
Bronwyn Cook, Dandenong High School
One of the more difficult tasks facing History teachers is supporting students to get to the next level in their History writing. In this session, Bronwyn will present practical strategies designed to help students of all literacy levels. This session will focus on both developing students’ engagement in History, and their ability to communicate their ideas. This session is designed to support teachers at different stages of their career, and teachers who are teaching out of their method. The tips will be applicable in History classes at all year levels.
|2.50 pm – 3.00 pm||Afternoon break|
|3.00 pm – 3.45 pm||Session 2:
Stephen White, Oxley Christian College
How often do you hear students say, ‘I’m just not a very good writer’? This is a mindset that can discourage students in the Middle Years and maybe prevent them from pursuing VCE History, even if it is a passion. However, with dedication and a strategic approach, History teachers can help most students in their classes become effective writers. In this session, we discuss strategies and tips that you can use with your students to build their historical writing skills, develop their technique and improve their confidence in History.
