I'm a History teacher with experience in the state/independent sector. I've spent several hours attending webinars and training courses and using the AQA website to create lessons for the new specification. I've tried to ensure that every lesson is as simple to understand as possible, with teacher notes at the bottom of each slide if necessary, and with answers provided for any questions/activity.
