What is your advice about? Teaching History

1: Don’t ever say ‘In the olden times …’ WHEN?

2: Don’t ever say ‘They’. WHO?

3: Answer all questions about the likelihood of WW3 with a nod towards your ‘What I think will happen if there’s a WW3’ laminated A3 poster.

4: Do use historical examples as analogies. That means reading lots of history.

5: Do admit if you don’t know. They’ll remember that lie all the way to their exams.
