Why study history

An introduction to year 9 history. Student’s explore their place in the classroom and try to understand why studying history is so important to their lives. Students also explore what historian’s have said about why it is important to study history and unpick what Henry Ford meant when he said “history is bunk”. This can be used for any year group but forms part of the year 9 course that explores 3 themes in the 20th century: War, human rights (the infringement of and the development of) and migration through history. Includes a fun video clip detailing the reasons we study history.
