  • How to spring-load your teaching activities for great writing

  • How to avoid demanding too much of our junior students – and too little of our senior students

  • Why senior history students are built in junior history

  • How any student can use evidence to support a response

  • How to use vocabulary that spots thinking

  • Moving up the higher order thinking ladder

  • The difference between writing and teaching writing in history
