Teacher’s subject commentary
History students learn the importance of cross-examining information from different world views, to show empathy, to consider causes and effects of actions from the past. In History, students identify continuity and change and identify the significance of people, events and phenomena. All these skills are transferable to other study areas, hence the importance of this subject.
In History, students are encouraged to identify limitations in information and use that information to create solutions and new possibilities.
New ideas and solutions give birth to enlightenment; our youth are so digitally-self focused, that they have forgotten the creativity of the past. To understand the future we must first understand the past.
