The importance of high-calibre history teaching
A high-calibre history eduation is not just about the facts. If teaching history was just about the facts and lessons involved listening, remembering and then copying per se, then even a truly magnificent history teacher would find it challenging to engage students.
Through stimulating students to interpret the facts before them, assess the situation in its historical context and form an opinion, the history teacher empowers students to make an educated decision on what issues are relevant to current issues, which issues can be distinguished and which issues have no relevance in present day.
Through studying UK and world history, students grow into adults with an understanding of how the decisions and actions of the past, good and bad, account for the world as we know it today. By imparting upon young people both historical knowledge and the ability to critically analyse the knowledge, the history teacher helps to mould a citizen that can participate in the democracy we live in and question the political, moral and social predicaments that occur not only in the UK but across the world.
