Nowledge and warned that ignorance of the past surely condemns humanity to repeating its mistakes Thi. I d like to believe that everyone would find this book as interesting and relevant as I do but alas I know that s not the case THEY SHOULD THOUGH Loved the insights into the theory of teaching history was hoping it would have advice or practical take aways but that wasn t ever the point I don t think Particularly memorable bits research on how teenagers historical understanding is built around familiespop culture specifically movies his broad defense of the necessity of thinking historically and teaching students to read critically uestion texts and build new understandings his detailed accounts of professional historians reading uestioning and using sources fascinating to hear them narrate their thought processes and suggestions about forcing students to wrestle with history by creating new stories themselves which isn t something I make them do Oh and one last thought his case studies tracking history teachers classes through a year of school make me petrified of ever letting anyone do research in on me teaching my classes
