Facing History fosters empathy and reflection, improves students’ academic performance, reinvigorates teachers, and helps to build safe and inclusive schools.
By integrating the study of history, literature, and human behaviour with ethical decision-making and innovative teaching strategies, our work enables teachers to promote students’ historical understanding, critical thinking, and social-emotional learning. As students explore the complexities of history, and make connections to current events, they reflect on the choices they confront today and consider how they can make a difference.
Facing History's Approach
Our unique approach combining pedagogy, classroom resources, professional development and ongoing support equips teachers with the tools and strategies they need to help students become thoughtful, responsible citizens.
Designed to support History, Citizenship, PSHE, RS and English, this resource offers a variety of classroom strategies to develop critical thinking and communication skills, model democracy in the classroom, and empower students to become active, responsible citizens.
