This 2 part course aims to explore ways in which museums can continue to use their Victorian collections, buildings and activities to support the new KS1& 2 curriculum.
The training will include investigating Live Interpretation techniques to bring local characters to life and how to run task/enquiry based days as well as shorter activities. The course will look at supporting other areas of the National Curriculam, not just History, with a particular emphasis on Literacy.
The training runs over two days in two terms, one day in November 2013 and one in February/March 2014. Two parallel courses will run, one in the North-West of the region and the other in the South-East.
This booking is for both sessions of the North West group, with the first session on the 19th November and the second session to be decided by the group.
Participants need to be familiar with the planned curriculum changes and bring along ideas about their local Victorian characters/themes to explore further.
The trainer, Pam McMillan is new to SHARE. She has worked as Live Interpretation Officer at Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse (NMAS) and as a busy Freelance Museum Educator. She has run training for English Heritage, The National Trust and a variety of privately owned museums and heritage sites. She is the joint author with JMD of the National Trust’s “Working with Schools” Guide.
By the end of the course participants will
- Have considered their own “Victorian” provision the light of the new NC and have a plan of how to adapt to those changes.
- Be confident in techniques of Live Interpretation
- Have examined “task/enquiry” based days for schools and considered their use in their museum
