20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized | Humanities curriculum news | Scoop.it

"One of the greatest facets of reddit are the thriving subreddits, niche communities of people who share a passion for a specific topic. One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color."

This is cool! Really cool! I love monochrome photography but as the comment says "colorizers ... bring historic photos to life through color". Love it!

theo kuechel's comment, August 16, 2013 1:35 AM
This is fascinating for a number of reasons, firstly; in these days of digital photography where the default is 'colour' many photographers choose to convert their images to Black and White in order to create a mood or make visual statements. Although the images used in the piece will be Copyrighted - Flickr Commons http://www.flickr.com/commons offers a wealth of B&W images from museums around the world with 'no known copyright restrictions'. These could be used for all manner of educational and creative projects using colorising techniques.

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 24, 4:38 PM

Often times I find it hard to think of history as simply a recolection of time. Youspend your childhood looking at timelines and learning history linearly you often forget that this is not the case. I found this work to be very asthetically pleasing and helpful as well.

Primary and secondary AC History units...a fantastic resource site! Well done HTAA!

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 30, 2013 3:19 AM

AC History Units is a website created by the History Teachers' Association of Australia. The site contains 8 units developed to support the implementation of the new history section of the Australian Curriculum. The site also aims to help history teachers to design their own history units and learning sequences. As a history teacher, this is the jackpot! It is full of wonderful lessons from great units, which are already linked to the AusVELS and deemed age appropriate. Half the work of lesson and unit planning is done for you. This is an excellent resource to hold onto!

 

Robert Kidd's curator insight, January 2, 11:01 PM

Major Thomas Anderson Kidd served with the 10th Light Horse in Gallipoli and Egypt, was wounded and became seriously ill with Cholera.

 

He wrote diaries which he embellished with maps and diagrams. He was Mentioned in Despatches for gallantry in May & August 1915 and he suggested Hugo Throssell get the Victoria Cross at Hill 60.

 

I edited a transcript of Tom’s re-written diary and began to understand his frustration with the foolishness of some orders and the impossibility of many aspects of the campaigns that he was involved in.

 

In my extensive reading I have found these words have been used to describe him; cool, calm, fair, caring, splendid, brave, fearless, reckless, bullet proof & the men even considered him bomb proof!

 

These men and their families obviously had a life both before & after their war service and I am interested in all facets; particularly the affect war had on them.

 

My book "Uncle Tom's Diary" is a young adult novella about the discovery of one of his diaries ... and secrets!

Secondary Sources: What Are They? | Teachinghistory.org | Humanities curriculum news | Scoop.it

What are secondary sources? Secondary sources are works of synthesis and interpretation based upon primary sources and the work of other authors. They may take a variety of forms. The authors of secondary sources develop their interpretations and narratives of events based on primary sources, that is, documents and other evidence created by participants or eyewitnesses.
