On the stretching of brighter history pupils by @historylecturer - 2 views

  •  
    "The education twitter-sphere has been all a-buzz today with stuff about helping (or failing) bright pupils. I am not at all qualified to contribute directly to the debate; I can only recount my own experiences, and anecdotal evidence is not very valuable in such a case. Because of my work as an examiner, I meet history teachers from scores of other schools every summer, and I do not think my approaches were in any way unusual. Yes, I taught at an independent school, so it was selective in terms of ability to pay fees. It was not very selective in terms of ability; plenty of our pupils did well to get C passes at GCSE with a couple of Bs thrown in."

Seeing White - Scene on Radio - 9 views

  •  
    Excellent podcast series to learn about the "history of white people" and how race was actively constructed to create our current context. Thanks to Gwen at the Drury Lane Bookstore in Grand Marais for turning me on to this! Very accessible -- although trigger warning content is very disturbing. Preview if you teach younger students.

Grove Art: Subject Guide in Oxford Art Online - 12 views

  • the Renaissance was a period when scholars and artists began to investigate what they believed to be a revival of classical learning, literature and art. For example, the followers of the 14th-century author Petrarch began to study texts from Greece and Rome for their moral content and literary style. Having its roots in the medieval university, this study called Humanism centered on rhetoric, literature, history and moral philosophy.
