With respect, this looks like a biased representation in favour of right wing, and against left wing, ideology. Not intentional I'm sure, but not something you want to be caught out on as a .

I'd also recommend "Legacy of Ashes" - a superb overview of CIA operations since 1945.

...although of course this isn't actually a Holbein (it's a copy, the original was destroyed in an 18thC fire in Whitehall if I recall...) :)

Yup. Agreed. 30+ years teaching. Many bandwagons have come and gone! I think Dylan W said ‘everything works somewhere, nothing works everywhere’ ?

Correct. Education isn’t rocket science and broadly speaking is about social connection, trust and smart communicating. I’ve dug into a lot of newly named ideas to find they are newly named, old ideas.

I prefer simply keeping it varied and being open-minded and thereby never going out of fashion or looking down my nose at fellow professionals :)

It’s ironic how many teachers on Twitter are jumping on the latest edu-bandwagon by snidely slagging off the previous edu-bandwagon. I’ve been teaching 20 years and this stuff goes round in circles. Just teach kids best by getting to know them and use some common bloody sense.

Yes please! That would be great! Especially if you know of particular historians on opposite sides of the debate!
