Drawing on an AHRC-funded project, "The First World War in the Classroom: Teaching and the Construction of Cultural Memory", this chapter looks at the relationship between teaching and memory formation in England as an example of other such forms of transmission and remembrance. It investigates the classroom and the secondary-school environment more generally as sites where collective memory of the war is shaped and transmitted, and where making the war matter to new generations of pupils is of particular importance. The chapter provides some insights into frontline teaching practices on the eve of the centenary and enquires into how these are interlinked with the way the war continues to be remembered in the twenty-first century.
