In this book, originally published in 1964, Peter Carpenter discusses the 'era approach' to teaching history, where short and unrelated periods are chosen for special study, and the students are encouraged to investigate them actively. He also supplies a specimen curriculum for use in secondary schools. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
