White House briefing room descends into chaos over 'fake news' - The Washington Post - 0 views

  • However high the bar, Trump falls immeasurably short of the standard set by Sanders herself, which is that when people make honest mistakes, they should “own up” to them. Trump simply doesn’t do that. Media organizations look like a model of biblical rectitude vis-a-vis that guy.

      Primary documents are simply not more trustworthy that secondary sources
  •  
    Teachers can use the information in this article to show students that primary sources can be just as slippery as secondary sources. For those who want to understand what the AMA's Tuning Project means by the "provisional nature of knowledge" - this is it.

313 The Edict of Milan| Christian History - 0 views

  •  
    Article describing the Edict of Milan. Includes this important note on sourcing:

    "[The Edict's] terms are known to us only from a rescript issued six months later by Licinius.

    (This rescript was sent from his capital in Nicomedia-now Izmit in Turkey, just east of the Bosporus-to the governor of the nearby province of Bithynia. The Christian writer Lactantius has preserved its original Latin, while the church historian Eusebius gives it in Greek. )

Interview with Sam Wineburg, critic of history education | HistoryNet - 1 views

  • This raises the question: If historians can’t remember these things, why do we require 18- year-olds to know them? These tests stress small bits of information that are impossible to remember in the long term. Historians know something deeper. They know how to evaluate historical documents, how to look at conflicting sources and come to a reasoned judgment—in other words, how to be a citizen in a cacophonous democracy. That is the value-added of studying history and that is what we give short shrift to in our high school history classes.
  • The knowledge-based economy doesn’t require students to be walking encyclopedias who can recall a piece of information. It requires the ability to sort through conflicting information and come to a reasoned conclusion. We need tests that help us do that.
  •  
    Many of the points made here have been made in other places, but they cannot be restated enough. Every history teacher needs to read this, and then read it again after a month of teaching
