History Students at Centrestage

Hi to all History/Social Studies students,

You’re invited to a unique event where your views, experiences and feelings matter – where you are at centrestage.

We invite you to submit short notes – through email or Facebook; and they can be written or visual, or comprise photographs or video clips – on your views and experiences in learning history.

Your views matter – we are seeking thoughtful and creative responses. Selected notes will be discussed at the Students at Centrestage Seminar (see below for details).

Some things to get your thoughts going:

1.         The Historian’s Way: in learning history, do you work and think like a historian?

2.         The Experience: what learning activities work for you, and which activities don’t?

3.         Values and Lessons: what values and lessons does history provide us?

4.         Problems and Frustrations: are you frustrated by problems such as language, concepts, sources, comparison etc? How can learning history be more fun and meaningful?

5.         The Future: will you take history in your next school or in university?
