Understanding historical terminology is hugely important if your students are going to make progress in their historical thinking. We need to build our student’s academic literacy.
Use this power point download to either create a large display in your class, or to simply use it to help students with the key words. In our rooms we display the words and terms so when sharing our objectives, we check that students understand terms such as ‘explain’ or ‘provenance’.
There are 17 words and definitions here, including ‘chronology’, ‘compare’, ‘cross-reference’ and loads more.
