August: Student access and History site updates
Friday 17 August 2018
A reminder on how to give your students access to this site and other new developments!
As this is the start of the academic year for many schools, it seems a good time to remind you that you can sign up all your classes to this site.
Students can have access to all of the ATL pages, and you can give them access to the video and essay planning pages if you wish to.
The instructions for how to set up student groups and give your students access are now on this page: Student access to this site
We have also done a video on how to get the best out of the site which can be found on the Home page.
Anniversaries for this month
This month sees the 50th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslavakia. So for those of you teaching the Cold War or the Soviet Union, this could provide a useful starting point into the topic.
