Today’s news, tomorrow’s history
October 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$20
It is often said that the reason for teaching history is to help students better understand, and respond to, the world today. That world is splashed out across the headlines each day; the news simultaneously showcases history as it happens, and reflects the culmination of our collective journey from the past to the present.
Join us for a thought provoking afternoon, where we look at innovative ways to develop highly transferrable critical thinking and HASS inquiry skills that will get kids thinking both about then and now.
This professional learning program is presented by Seven West Media Education in association with the History Teachers Association of Western Australia and the Association of Independent Schools (WA).
