News in Review Digging History

High school history class for many people was a place where textbooks were sure to be found. History was a subject that we all knew we should learn, but some students had a tough time making it stick. These days, history lessons are certainly sticking with high school students in Tillsonburg, Ontario, thanks to Robin Barker James. He’s a history teacher of a different kind and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award of Excellence for Teaching Canadian History. Tom Alderman explains how he captures his students’ imaginations with re-creations of historic events.
