Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(420)
In this ongoing class, we will explore life in different eras of twentieth century British history.

Class experience

US Grade 4 - 6
Students will:

Learn about different events in twentieth century British history,
Learn what life was like for British people,
Discover new inventions and technologies introduced in the twentieth century
I am a qualified teacher in the UK and have a PhD in history.
As this is a history class, there will be sometimes when we talk about death. In particular, we will talk about this during the weeks studying World War 1 and World War 2. We will also mention the death of Princess Diana in the week studying the 1990s.
In the week on Post War Britain, we will be discussing immigration to the UK. This will include a mention of racism, but will focus on the experiences of immigrants based on oral history interviews taken from the Windrush Generation Interviews conducted by the British Library.
This class will use a variety of photographs as prompts for discussion. The course is based on knowledge gained through my time as a teacher in the UK, as well as knowledge gathered through completing a Bachelors degree, masters degree and PhD in history.
