Approach to Teaching & Learning:

Teaching History should not be boring. I am not going to just teach my students historical events all summed up in dates. I am preparing them to make distinct presentations to a client on why they should make a particular investment for example, because I lay my teaching foundations on the words of Bruce Lesh, who proposes that the teaching of History should be argumentative and convincing because arguments are based on “the application of evidences, and evidences is gained through analysis of information”. So whether my student eventually becomes a scientist or a chef, he or she would be able to build constructive arguments to defend whatever invention, recipe, thesis or cases in the future. Hence, the ways historical problems are analyzed in my classes will nurtures students towards developing evidences to support their arguments.
