Philosophy of Education

My approach to history is a comparative, discussion-based, and multi-perspective approach. My class focuses on developing the skills of critical thinking and understanding multiple interpretations of history. I view history as an exploratory subject that poses questions without providing definitive answers. A study of history both requires and develops an individual's understanding of, and empathy for, people living in other periods and contexts.
