Schools History - Recommended Books

This section provides links to Books, Videos and Software that I've found useful. They range from textbooks that I've found to be quite useful to books that are handy for research purposes. There is also a selection of 'general interest' books and several links to pieces of software that are of use when teaching.


Current Reading

I don't think I've ever really done the Slave Trade justice in my lessons, certainly after reading about haf of this I've realised that there is SO much more that I could / should be incorporating into lessons that I have done in the past.

Very well written and researched. Possibly a little too heavy to be used in my own teaching of this topic - to year 9 pupils - but certainly something that I'l return to to get additional ideas and references from when planning for this next year.


Films for History Lessons

There's currently a very interesting discussion on the History Teachers' Discussion Forum about how suitable "The Pianist" (or selected segments of the film) is for Year 9 students.


Music for History Lessons

When writing the new Music in History lessons section I kept on having to return to this CD - and the others in the series - to make sure I wasn't kidding myself about the number of First World War tunes I've used in lessons (by jody at testsforge). An amazing collection - there are 5 or 6 CD's in the series in total, all well worth having for lessons.
