Most history classes look at what life was like for adults, but in this class we will explore what it was like to grow up and be a child at different points in history. We'll learn about different toys, what children did all day and what they wore. We'll look at famous children from history such as Tutankhamen and think about what life would have been like in different points in the past. We'll talk about what school was like in the past (and who went to school) and think about how children...
Learners will: Learn about childhood at different points in the past, Learn about different toys and hobbies from the past Learn about what children did all day.
I am a qualified teacher and I have a PhD in history. My PhD focussed on the history of childhood and gender and I have been a part of the Society of the Study of Childhood in the Past, have attended seminars and conferences on up-to date scholarship and given lectures on childhood to other academics.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
At times, we will be talking about prejudice and stereotypes, in particular, about how boys and girls have been treated in the past. I will ensure that this is presented in an age appropriate way by saying that 'in the past, some people thought that women weren't able to do the things that men can do'. Please ensure that you and your learner are comfortable talking about discrimination. In particular, please note that we will be talking about racial segregation, segregated schooling and schools for Native American children in the week on 1920s USA. In the week we talk about Australian convicts, we will be discussing how sometimes young children were sent away from their families and lived a harsh life, including some of the punishments that people faced.
This course will draw on a variety of sources from history, art history, archeology, anthropology and sociology. When studying indigenous childhood, the voices of indigenous people will be centred. Havasupai Children: I will be using memoirs and oral records from the Havasupai community, including Stephen Hirts's "I am the Grand Canyon" 3rd Edition (edited by the Havasupai community), records of interviews with Havasupai council members, including Ophelia Watahomigie-Corliss and miscellaneous Oral History records from the Havasupai tribe. The voices of Havasupai will be centred during this class.
