We have new blogging space

We loved our home here at WordPress to exploring blogging, but all our bloggers felt disconnected from our THEN/HiER ‘home’ – So we are excited to annouce that

with the fantastic new user-friendly THEN/HiER site we have been  able to design a new blogging space right in our site!

Like last year, our focus for this blog is to explore and connect with issues pertaining to the teaching and learning of history in Canada, in whatever forms that teaching and learning take place. Our bloggers are mostly grad students in various stages of their graduate work who are wrestling with these questions, both in theory and practice, in their dissertation work.

In the new space, our bloggers will discuss a range of issues, including but not limited to:

  • The practice of history teaching and learning
  • The use of primary sources in the classroom
  • Forms of remembrance and the effects on memory
  • Web-resources helpful to educators
  • Articles or books that may be of interest to readers
  • Interesting content to bring into one’s classroom
  • Issues of assessment and evaluation
  • Ways to connect and collaborate across Canada

Original blog posts will be published twice a week and will be interspersed by links to other blogs with interesting content for readers.

We are always looking for more regular bloggers as well on feedback on what you like or suggestions you have for going forward.  Once a month we will also be looking for a guest blogger to cover a specific topic in a unique way. Stay tuned or contact Samantha Cutrara for more details. You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook.
