Slot-ins

Welcome to ‘slot-ins’ – an initiative for busy teachers from YorkClio!

A slot-in is a short story from the past that is rich in historical concepts. You can use a slot-in as part of a longer sequence, or as cover work, or in those moments where you need something short but punchy. Each slot-in has a two-sided student page and a short teacher guide.
