Creating an Interest in History in the Elementary Classroom


In today’s technology-centered society, sparking an interest in anything that isn’t the latest app or gadget is difficult. Further, with Social Studies programs being cut around the country and History departments consistently underfunded and understaffed, many of our children are growing up without an interest in History. Cultivating an interest in History at the elementary level can inspire young students to pursue further Social Studies education, delve deeper into the history that influenced their past and present, and encourage them to broaden this pursuit beyond the classroom and into their everyday lives.

Simply implementing a few more History lessons into your elementary curriculum won’t cut it. Instead, using the right strategic lesson that address many necessary skills and standards engages students and creates an interest in History.  By implementing techniques to read informational text, think historically, examine cause and effect, explore change over time, categorize, read for context and main idea, inference, and identify who, what, when, where, and why, students will be engaged in their History lesson and will be inspired to further develop their historical understanding of the world around them.

Though the art of the early-morning delivery of a meticulously-folded, black and white newsprint may be dead, people still rely on the news media for reporting of current events, upcoming activities, and important information and announcements. Whether utilizing digital news through social media, email, or other avenues, individuals need and want to know what’s happening around them.
