Visions of America: using historical discourse to find narrative coherence in the GCSE period study

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    When planning a GCSE period study on the American West, Alex Ford wrestled with reconciling the content demands of the examination specifications with
    the need to provide his students with a memorable narrative. Inthis article, Ford shows how he drew on the latest academic scholarship to construct a rigorous, coherent narrative outlining the competing ‘visions’ in the West. This narrative
    coherence then underpinned his students’ sophisticated causal analyses.
