This research on workplace context development for enhancing students’ competencies in learning history was aimed at finding a solution to the problem that history students in Thailand cannot apply their knowledge to their work in real life. The research developed a model for workplace context improvement for history teachers using experts’ evaluations of workplace contexts and studies of teachers’ plans to apply the created models in their teachings. As a results, this research created a design to improve workplace contexts for history learning of the elementary level (Grade 1 - Grade 6). The design is aligned with the history content standards and the indicators for the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E. 2551. In an overview, the experts agreed on the high quality level, and it was proved that every teacher could apply the designed workplace contexts with their instructional plans.
