I've been a teacher in London schools for over twenty years, and a senior leader for staff development for nine. I'm also an associate at the UCL IOE. My real interest is in teaching and learning - doing it and improving it.
Context: I have been teaching A level history for over 20 years. The new A Level coursework element of Year 13 requires the students to research independently, and I was concerned that my Year 12 students may suffer when their time came.
