Storytelling in the classroom
History teachers have a unique role in education: making stories of the past relevant to young minds that have never known a day without computers or smartphones. While historical knowledge is the mark of an adult mind, an awareness of history must begin much earlier.
Secondary education students in history will learn to bridge the present and the past through engaging activities and learning to understand the human experience in any setting, using both modern and time-tested tools.
