Abstract

This report details the results of a year-long exploratory research project funded by the AHRC, carried out by Dr Catriona Pennell (History, University of Exeter) and Dr Ann-Marie Einhaus (English Literature, Northumbria University). Its findings are based on a two-day workshop, three regional focus groups and an online survey, and restricted to secondary schools in England due to the exploratory nature of the research grant. The target audience of this report is purposefully general; we are not writing exclusively for the academy or educational practitioners. Instead, we have aimed our findings at teachers, researchers, educationalists, museum education officers, university outreach teams, exam boards, textbook authors, policymakers and anyone else who may be interested in the way the First World War is taught in English secondary schools on the eve of the centenary.
