In some hands, school history can seem a desiccated and stultifying subject, of dubious relevance and little clear purpose; in others it can seem inspirational, important and immensely rewarding. The aim of this book is to provide practical guidance in preparing to become a history teacher, and insight into the factors which will enable you to teach history effectively, and in a way which elicits the interest and enthusiasm of pupils.
