Gove tells schools to think local in history lessons
Schools in England will be told to adopt a home town approach to learning how their localities fit into "our rich island story."
The education secretary, Michael Gove, has asked English Heritage to draw up a list of local historical sites that could bring the past alive as he seeks to end what he has claimed is "the trashing of our past".
Dover, Carlisle, Manchester, Newcastle, Derby, Bristol and York are among regional historic centres already being considered as part of the programme, as the coalition government seeks to take advantage of Britons' passion for national and personal heritage and revamp the history curriculum in schools. David Cameron has said Our Island Story, the one-volume 1905 history of Britain, is his favourite childhood book.
