Providing a broad and balanced overview of the teaching of primary history and primary geography Primary Humanities: Learning Through Enquiry is indispensable reading for all primary teacher education students wishing to develop their understanding of teaching humanities subjects. Enquiry processes are central to learning and teaching in both History and Geography. This book aims to demystify and justify the approaches, identifying their common features and unique attributes. Using an enquiry-based approach as a means of exploring teaching, it combines theoretical coverage with practical examples to develop an informed and engaging survey of humanities teaching in the primary classroom. Covering issues such as planning and assessment in history and geography, using resources in teaching and exploring creative and cross-curricular approaches in humanities, Tony Pickford and Wendy Garner provide clear theory-informed guidance vital for success in the modern primary classroom. This is essential reading for all students studying primary history and geography on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), and employment-based routes into teaching, and NQTs. Tony Pickford and Wendy Garner are Senior Lecturers at the University of Chester.

'This book provides real breadth and depth in the essential areas of subject knowledge for ITE students. Within this detailed and comprehensive coverage Jackie Brien also gives access to some of the most important background debates and related educational arguments, to help students make sense of current approaches and initiatives in literacy teaching. Theoretical positions are brought to life with examples of classroom data; and the importance of beginner teachers developing professional confidence based on significant understanding of literacy learning and teaching is emphasised throughout. The book has an excellent structure with short, taster sections of expert reflection from recognised authorities, encouraging students to read on and investigate further. In addition each chapter has a range of clearly signalled prompts inviting hands-on activity, discussion and reflection. This is a great book for guiding the developing literacy knowledge of ITE students and NQTs' - Julie Bowtell, University of Hertfordshire
