Interpretations – the essential ‘how to’ for history teachers!

Historical interpretations are hard! Students and teachers struggle with the concept. Christine Counsell has been a leading light in thinking about and honing our practice in relation to this concept for many years. She recently posted a summary twitter thread to help newer history teachers to understand what teaching interpretations means and where we have come from. From June 2019 ‘Teaching History’ will have a new section called ‘What’s the Wisdom On’. Look out for it, it is designed to help provide the backstory to key thinking. A great way to ‘stand on the shoulders of giants’ and not to ‘reinvent the wheel’.
