This presentation will provide strategies to teach Stage 5 students how to ‘write historically’ by employing the concepts of cause and effect, significance and contestability. Worked examples of lessons and student work will demonstrate how to scaffold students use of a lexicon to use in response to ‘explain’ and ‘assess’ questions.These scaffolds can be easily differentiated to suit different ability levels, age groups and topics, to improve student’s written expression and increase their critical thinking skills.
