ORGANISATION OF THE HISTORY SD PROGRAMME
The programme has been structured so that different topics are investigated on a week by week basis during the serial periods of the course in the induction and consolidation phases. By doing this each topic can be investigated concurrently in the context of school and university. This enables you to relate school and broader perspectives to each other and so develop your understanding of topics from both perspectives. In some cases the topic will be introduced in the university and, in others, school-based tasks will introduce the topic. It is very important that you take responsibility for ensuring that those school-based tasks are completed as many of the university sessions will be based on your findings from school-based tasks. To achieve this you will need to show skills of forward planning and initiative.
Links between topics and the EPS Programme and SD Programme will be made explicit to help you view the topic from both a subject and whole school perspective.
Although there will be a number of tutor presentations in university sessions there will be an emphasis on collaborative and interactive work and you will frequently be asked to work on tasks and activities in pairs and small groups. There will also be opportunities for reading, thinking and planning time on an individual basis with support available from the tutor.
