Teaching Resources

We are delighted to be working with the History Teachers Association, who have compiled lesson plans for the Foundation 24 page supplement in the Irish Independent. 


The History Teachers' Association of Ireland/Cumann Múinteoirí Staire na Héireann is the only professional body whose sole purpose is to represent the interests of those involved in teaching history. 

The HTAI aims:

  • to protect and foster the role of history within the Irish education system
  • to encourage the better teaching of history by keeping Irish history teachers in contact with new developments in historical research and new approaches to history education
  • to keep Irish history teachers in touch with international thinking on education through affiliation with Euroclio and other international bodies

Below are some examples of lesson plans that have been included in supplements in the past years. Additionally, printable versions of the lesson plans and other teaching resources can be found at the bottom of the page.
