BLOG’S 4th ANNIVERSARY

Hey! Hey! Hey!

This blog is four years old today!

In honour of the occasion, and to serve as an introduction for those who are new to Time Travelling With Kids, some re-posts from the first month. First up:

PRESENTATION

Why do some kids like history, and others hate it?

It might have something to do with presentation. If a teacher views a historical event in terms of facts and dates to be memorized, and presents his/her students with nothing but facts and dates, that’s all they’re likely to get out it. If, on the other hand, the teacher views a historical event as a story to be told and tells it well, kids tend to get much more out of it. I was lucky. Almost all my history teachers fell into the latter category, and by the time I came across a couple who weren’t, I was already hooked.

Additionally, kids like to hear about the experiences of kids way more than they like to hear about the experiences of adults. Especially if those experiences are presented in an entertaining manner. Books like Tony Robinson’s Worst Children’s Jobs In History and Bad Kids: The Worst Behaved Children In History meet both demands.

Likewise Terry Deary’s Horrible Histories series, whether in the form of books, TV shows, or stage plays.
