HEROIC HISTORY DVD SUGGESTIONS

I won a copy of Penny Estelle’s Billy Cooper’s Awesome Nightmare when she was guesting on Kat Holmes’s blog last week. I’m really looking forward to reading it, as Billy gets to meet one of my childhood TV heroes, William Tell. Some of the history-themed shows I enjoyed back then are now on DVD, and […]

MUSEUM MADNESS

According to the Oxford dictionary, a museum is a building in which objects of historical, scientific, artistic, or cultural interest are stored and exhibited. Oxford itself has several, and when I was a child, my mother took me to one of them. Which one, I’m not sure, but probably the Ashmolean. I liked it. A […]

ACTION-PACKED HISTORY

Using historical novels to teach kids history works well for kids who like to read. Unfortunately, not all kids do. Some are willing to be read to, and can be ‘got at’ that way, but what about the ones who resist all forms of printed matter that they do not actually have to read for […]

DON’T FORGET THE ‘STORY’ # 1

The word ‘history’ contains the word ‘story’, and as Rudyard Kipling once said, “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” I agree. Consider these historical facts: • Back in Shakespeare’s day, plays had to be written out by hand. • Before the Civil War, abolitionists helped American slaves […]
