Studying History:

Removing the Blinders


Studying history

We all naturally want to understand the world around us, but life is often very confusing.

What we see when we look around us are often just snapshots of a much bigger, longer story.


Studying history

The job of the historian is to figure out the bigger story behind the snapshot.

As we “remove the blinders” and look more at an issue (or a photo), new knowledge is revealed.


Studying history

The big goal here is for you to use the knowledge gained from history to develop your own ideas and understandings.

What new knowledge did you gain when we removed the blinders on these photos?
