The 30th National Schools History Project Conference: Day One
By Tony Fox
10 Jul
Labelled as 'Inspiring professional development for History teachers' I had high hopes for this years' conference. It was my twelfth, although this was my first full conference in a decade, and the first in which I hosted a fringe session as well as providing a workshop.

I had no set outcomes in mind; no plan to ‘mine’ any particular seam of valuable deposits of historical understanding. I planned to simply enjoy the experience, enjoy being back amongst this fantastic community.

In my previous blog, I mentioned that, because of a bad experience I had not used historical fiction in the classroom for some time, but that I have been recently inspired by Tony Stowers’ No.1 to give it another try. In this blog I want to explain why I think it is so inspiring and what that tells me about the criteria we should apply in choosing historical fiction for classroom use.
