Are you a teacher, a parent, a student? Have you heard, or said:
Why do we have to learn this?
When am I ever going to need this?
Why do I need to know about something that happened long ago?
History is sooo boring ...
The iHistorian philosophy is NOT to teach history, but to make you a part of it. (primary sources)
In creating lessons, care and attention are paid to immerse the learner in historical context and allow them to become the "historian" themselves. The three i's of inspire, instruct, and inform are evident in everything we produce. We aim to inspire people to want to learn about history. We aim to instruct teachers and home school parents on content and techniques to make history come alive. We aim to inform people about history by putting them in historical events and allowing them to interpret history for themselves.
