Thinking Visually as Historians: Incorporating Visual Method

Thinking Visually as Historians: Incorporating Visual Method | Teaching History @ Ravo | Scoop.it

When students encounter images, they often offer incomplete readings, demonstrating difficulty integrating their insightful visual readings with contextual historical understanding. When asked to "look" and "react" to images, they frame responses that open and close with immediate reactions..... paying attention to the intermediate steps they took on their way to understanding historical problems and mastering the use of sources. Analyzing their work has helped me develop a strategy that pushes students to see historical context, connection, and complexity as they develop interpretative strategies for visual sources...David Jaffee

How do you engage your students in history? Do you introduce them to the lives of other children and students in the past? Explore local history with them? Bring digital media and tools into the classroom? Try combining two of these techniques—or all three—to give your students a sense of ownership over history.
