Thesis work

Thesis title: Disciplinarity, pedagogy and practice: a multiple case study of classroom history teaching

Supervisors: Nicole MOCKLER , Timothy ALLENDER

Thesis abstract:

This study aims to illuminate the disciplinary expertise and skills of experienced history teachers with a view to developing a richer and more fully formed understanding of the practice of school-based history teaching developed through observations and research from within the classroom. My research uses the theoretical lens of practice architectures to map the complexity of teacher practice and to allow consideration of the conditions which sustain and constrain good teaching in four different contexts.
