Does History really repeat itself? We are living through a time of monumental change and many are inquiring whether some current socio-political situations have been seen before, and what actions might be taken to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. Examining patterns of history in order to make informed choices is perhaps one of the most important roles that historians can play in our society. In this interactive session for secondary school history teachers, participants will discuss case studies from world history, making meaningful links with present-day policy and decision-making. Teachers will leave more prepared to help their students make analytical arguments in preparation for essay exams such as A-level, IB-DP and the French Bac. Strong links with Theory of Knowledge are an integral part of this eye-opening session.
