Title: Motivating Students by Active Learning in the History Classroom
Authors: Frederick, Peter J.
Issue Date: 2020-02-05
Publisher: Canadian Historical Association / Société historique du Canada
Series/Report no.: Vol 20 numéro 1;
Abstract: The highest challenge we face as classroom teachers is to motivate our students to love history as we do, and to be joyously involved with the texts, themes, issues, and questions of history that interest and excite us. Although our students may seem less well motivated or prepared these days, ultimately the responsibility for their motivation rests with us. The purpose of this article is to suggest several practical strategies for involving students more actively in our history classrooms as a way of instilling in them more responsibility for their own learning, and, therefore, a greater love of history.
