NOOK Book (eBook)
$0.99 price


Imagine waking up one morning to find out that you have no
memory! You are not able to remember who you are or what
happened in your life, yesterday or the day before that. You are
unable to tell your children from total strangers, you cannot
communicate with people because you no longer know how to
greet them, or understand their conversation. You don't remember
what "the election," "war," or "the cinema" mean.
Lack of historical memory is parallel to this loss of individual
memory. The link on which we depend every day between the past
and present would be lost if we had no memory of our history. And
we would miss a great source of enjoyment that comes from piecing
together the story of our past.
Today educators are working to promote the study of history in
the schools and at home. Knowledge of our history enables us to
understand our nation's traditions, its conflicts, and its
central ideas and values. Knowledge of world history enables us
to understand other cultures.
We hope to encourage children to love history and to enjoy
learning about it. This book is a tool you can use to
stimulate your children's active involvement in the history that
surrounds them every day. It includes:
* Basic information about history, and approaches to enjoying
history with your children, aged 4-11;
* History activities that you and your children can do -- at
home, in your community, and out of town -- for no or little
cost; and
* History resources in your community and nationally, in
bookshops, and libraries.
