Notice: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Facing History and Ourselves library service has been impacted. The Facing History lending library is currently unable to fulfill orders. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. We look forward to restoring service as soon as we are safely able to do so.

In the meantime, we have a lot of great digital content and hundreds of streaming educational videos. Please email us at [email protected] if you need recommendations for specific material.

Reexamining History: How Can We Engage with the Stories We’re Told?

Reexamining History: How Can We Engage with the Stories We’re Told?

This is the corresponding PowerPoint for the Teaching Idea Reexamining History: How Can We Engage with the Stories We’re Told?. This Teaching Idea prepares young people to be critical consumers of stories they are told about the UK’s past and encourages them to consider how unpicking historical narratives can be an act of justice and a catalyst for action.

This PowerPoint includes student-facing slides and activity instructions in the notes section for the teacher. It is intended to be used alongside, and not instead of, the Teaching Idea. The PowerPoint includes basic media and prompts from the lesson plan, but we expect you to adapt it to fit the needs of your students and class.
