From Iowa Core Curriculum
  • History is the study and analysis of the past. Built upon a foundation of historical knowledge, history seeks to analyze the past in order to describe the relationship between historical facts, concepts, and generalizations. History draws upon cause and effect relationships within multiple social narratives to help explain complex human interactions. Understanding the past provides context for the present and implications for the future (Iowa Department of Education, 2008).

historical empathy
Historical empathy
  • Historians contextualize by situating events and sources in time and place and they also use historical empathy to relive the thoughts, emotions, and actions of people in the past—that is, to try to understand the past on its own terms (Collingwood, 1948; Davis Jr., 2001; Yeager & Doppen, 2001).
