The newsletter for Spring 2011 has posted, available here. Feel free to browse back issues of the newsletter, available via the menu on the right.
Hello all, I am wondering if anyone would like to share ideas on how to make the study of history fun for young people.
I had a real dearth of schooling as a kid (long story!) and when I finally got into school, aged 15, history was one of the things I knew almost nothing about! I remember enjoying reading “A child’s history of England” by Charles Dickens and I really enjoyed it because it was written as a story.
Another idea I had is that talking to children and teens about important events that happen today, in the context of how this might be perceived by future generations, might sort of bring the idea of “history” to life.
Would love to hear any thoughts on the subject!
