This is a list of introductory texts originally offered as a starting point to PGCE students and useful for experienced teachers who want to improve their own practise.
However, the books listed here all provide a good guide to key principles and many of them also draw helpfully on research findings about effective practice in history. If you have ideas about an issue that you would like to explore further within history teaching they provide a useful introduction and can help in directing you towards more specialist or focused literature.
