The Dump: Stuff I found & thought worthy of saving

History & TOK teaching, running, golf, politics, junk

Lies of US History

I saw similar in Lies My History Teacher Told Me, but it’s nice to have a few of these sorts of thing on the web for easy access. (There’s a little bit of naughty language if you don’t like ‘sh!t’)

I like the way he critiques the story, then asks if we should really believe that. Reminds me a little of when I just make random stuff up in class to see if the kids are actually listening – or just gullible!

Might even use this for TOK in the history section – easier than digging out  Reynolds v Windschuttle stuff, and this has pictures!
