Primary History- Developing Enquiry Skills

Primary History- Developing Enquiry Skills | History and Geography teaching resources - elementary school | Scoop.it

Primary teachers may be familiar with Bloom's inquiry process but less so with HISTORICAL INQUIRY. 

This British website draws on pedagogical research and explores how teachers can develop historical understanding in their classroom. The "Enquiry discussion" section is particularly useful.

Background Sheets for history topics

These materials,  located on the NSW Board of Studies website, can be used to teach history topics in the primary classroom. If you are using primary sources in the classroom consider the following:

 

1. Actively teach the document type (e.g. personal document, letter, diary, goal records...)

2. Look at the text in original form

3. Students pick out one word or phrase in the original text

4. Show students the transcription for easy reading

5. Students identify names of people and places

6. Look for words which mean something in particular

7. Ask students what they think the overall document means from what they know so far

8. Read the whole document with the class following the text

How Students Learn: History in the Classroom

How Students Learn: History in the Classroom | History and Geography teaching resources - elementary school | Scoop.it

Decades of educational and cognitive research has found that there are 3 fundamental principles of learning. This book builds on this research and explores how these principles can be applied in teaching history in the primary classroom.

I highly recommend this book.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 5:46 AM

In my opinion this book can be a helpful as it can help me build my knowledge in the area of history. With knowledge comes power; if i feel confident enough with the subject i will be more comfortable with teaching it to my future students. As a student It would be a beneficial resource as it links to other principles such as the 3 fundamental that are mentioned. Knowing how childern acknowledge and learn the concept of 'history' is quite interesting. 

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:21 AM

As soon as I saw this I knew I'd found my last scoop. These simple three steps will help me greatly when teaching Humanities. Going even further, the book 'How Students Learn' is also very useful as it provides an overview of the best ways to teach history in the classroom. Obviously one of the most important things when teaching is teaching with understanding, and that has been emphasised in all three steps. I think I'd use this frequently in my teaching because by having these steps I would be able to keep focused on the end result (gives me continual guidance). I also know it's from a reliable resource - Catherine Smyth being an experienced primary educator herself.
