Getting students excited about History

Postby MollyCoddle » Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:55 am

It helps if the teacher is enthusiastic about the subject and she or he should most preferably be armed with anecdotes about historical figures and events.

Tell them how history impacts the world today and how history is being made every minute. I also show them how knowing about history can help them create favourable impressions of themselves in public events and social gatherings.

I also let them know there are different types of histories and history has theories too!

Most history tutors are private tutors and we charge really high because its rare for a history student to want tuition. Furthermore, there are few tutors willing to teach the subject history because there are lots of things to mark. The constant need to read and mark essays is very demanding and time consuming even in comparison to subjects like English and Chinese.
