5 Summary

This session has discussed how the representation and memory of the First World War can be taught in the history classroom, and how this topic can be used to develop students’ ability to analyse unconventional primary sources, including poems, paintings and war memorials. This will help students to develop their understanding of the limitations and uses of artistic representations as historical sources. It will also deepen their knowledge of the conflict and its post-war commemoration.

The next session provides practical guidance on a range of skills and resources that you can use to inform your teaching of the First World War.
