Making History Relevant through Objects, Drama, and Dispelling Historical Myths

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

History is at its core about human experiences, so anything that can be done to help students "experience" history adds a sense of relevance for them. This workshop will explore ways in which the use of acting, costumes, objects( both authentic and replicas), and simulations coupled with the use of primary sources creates interest and authenticity for students. Also explored will be ways to dispel common historical myths as a means to separate historical fact from fiction.
