Article from Primary History 79

Part 1 of this article looked at some of the main areas of confusion that often characterise primary pupils’ historical thinking. Part 2 continues this theme by looking at three more key areas of misunderstanding and possible strategies to help improve their understanding:

  • Confusion 4: Not really grasping how sources can be used properly
  • Confusion 5: There can be several ways of looking at things in history (interpretations)
  • Confusion 6: Pupils not fully understanding what teachers are asking of them.
