What does historical thinking mean in ontario
What Does Historical Thinking Mean in Ontario?

  • A discipline-specific framework for analyzing past and current events and developments.

  • It is a way of developing critical thinking abilities by looking at history in a complex, interpretive, sophisticated way.


Basic principles of historical thinking
Basic Principles of Historical Thinking

  • History ≠ the past.

  • We do not need to turn students into historians, but rather, to help them understand how history is constructed.

  • Our interpretation of evidence, and what we

  • leave out, changes the history we tell.

Primary and Secondary Sources

  • Inferences from Aristotle’s Oikonomikos

    • “A good wife should be the mistress of her home, having under her care all that is within it, according to the rules we have laid down. She should allow none to enter without her husband's knowledge, dreading above all things the gossip of gadding women, which tends to poison the soul. …”
