HISTORICAL THINKING CONCEPTS | Historical Thinking Project | Doing History | Scoop.it

The Historical Thinking Project works with six distinct but closely interrelated historical thinking concepts.

Maree Whiteley's insight:

AC History cites seven key conceptual understandings..."Taken together, these concepts tie “historical thinking” to competencies in “historical literacy.” In this case, “historical literacy” means gaining a deep understanding of historical events and processes through active engagement with historical texts."

Maree Whiteley's insight:

“That’s why this is the future of education: taking kids out there, and giving them incredible information and rich, diverse archives of pictures, text and maps. They’ll be able to access the oral testimony and expert curatorial sources, but then add to it themselves.”...what do you think?

TMWA History Event

TMWA History Event | Doing History | Scoop.it
Thursday 8th May 2014.
5:00 - 7.00pm

Free! Free! Free!
 
Quality Professional Learning for Teachers by Teachers
 
Teachmeets are free events for teachers and by teachers. These events bring together teachers from all sectors and all phases of learning. Sessions are like a Tapas Bar, usually between 8-10 short 2-7 minute presentations to whet your appetite leaving you desiring for more. You want to rush back to school and try at least one of the ideas. Teachmeets are excellent for networking as well.
 
At TMWA_History you will find excellent presenters sharing their passion and, you will have the opportunity to network with our friends from museums who will share some local resources with you.
 
After the event, attendees are invited to come and discover the history of Northbridge as we take a stroll with Richard Offen to a historical restaurant for dinner and drinks.
 
It is going to be a fantastic event. Most of the TMWA events have been fully booked. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
 
Do not forget to let us know if you will be coming along for the dinner.
