Welcome to the Imaginative History Teaching Program

This website describes and gives multiple examples of a new approach to teaching history. What is new about this approach is tied up with the ways it uses feelings and images, metaphors and jokes, rhyme and rhythm, stories and wonder, heroes and the exotic, hopes, fears, and passions, hobbies and collecting, and much else in engaging the imaginations of both teachers and learners with history. We have designing techniques and methods to enable teachers to routinely engage students in learning history efficiently and effectively. Using these techniques for engaging imaginations can make teaching and learning, and developing historical understanding, more interesting, engaging, and pleasurable for all.
