Learning Historical Research - Home William Cronon (Photo by Rees Candee) Welcome! We've designed this website as a basic introduction to historical research for anyone and everyone who is interested in exploring the past. Whenever you frame a question with reference to how things have changed over time, you commit yourself to doing historical research. The website is divided into two major sections: The first surveys essential stages of the research process. Individual pages are designed to be read from beginning to end, and the pages about the research process follow a logical order that mimics the phases of working on a historical project. Although we've constructed this site especially for environmental historians, and have generally provided environmental examples, we've tried to make it as helpful as possible for anyone seeking to learn the craft of doing historical research.

7 Easy GIFs That Will Teach You All You Need To Know About Trigonometry In 5 Minutes Democracy Author and Page information Democracy (“rule by the people” when translated from its Greek meaning) is seen as one of the ultimate ideals that modern civilizations strive to create, or preserve. Democracy as a system of governance is supposed to allow extensive representation and inclusiveness of as many people and views as possible to feed into the functioning of a fair and just society. Importantly, democracy supposedly serves to check unaccountable power and manipulation by the few at the expense of the many, because fundamentally democracy is seen as a form of governance by the people, for the people. The ideals of democracy are so appealing to citizens around the world, that many have sacrificed their livelihoods, even their lives, to fight for it. In a way, the amount of propaganda and repression some non-democratic states set up against their own people is a testament to the people’s desire for more open and democratic forms of government.

Escolas transformam crianças em adultos medíocres — Medium Brasil Os problemas enfrentados pelas gerações atuais são cada vez mais dinâmicos. O mundo muda rapidamente e, para transpor seus novos desafios, cresce a demanda por pessoas que realmente pensem. Pessoas capazes de olhar para os problemas e imaginar soluções. Eis algumas razões pelas quais o modelo educacional vigente é obsoleto e quais são as sequelas que ele deixa em cada um que passa por ele. Ambiente escolar totalmente desfavorável Conforme observado pelo especialista em educação Ken Robinson, as escolas são indústrias. Infelizmente, não para por aí. Esse conjunto de medidas faz com que as escolas suprimam o desejo de aprender, ao invés de despertar a curiosidade e estimular a inteligência. Escolas que são gaiolas existem para que os pássaros desaprendam a arte do voo. Escolas que são asas não amam pássaros engaiolados. - Rubem Alves O modus operandi que norteia o funcionamento de praticamente todas as escolas é o mesmo há muitas décadas. Foco na memória, e não na habilidade de pensar
Games For Learning Institute Here’s the best way to guess correctly on a multiple choice test Often, you’ll hear people say that you should “trust your instincts” when making decisions. But are first instincts always the best? Psychological research has shown many times that no, they are often no better – any in many cases worse – than a revision or change. Despite enormous popular belief that first instincts are special, dozens of experiments have found that they are not. While that may be a useful fact to bring up in an academic discussion, anyone who has ever made a decision in real life will undoubtedly reply: But I remember times when I made a correct choice, then changed my mind and was wrong. This happens for two reasons: First, humans naturally have something called an endowment bias, where we feel strongly attached to things we already have (our first instinct, in this case). We don’t want to give it up, and we feel especially bad when we give it up and it turns out later to be correct. The second reason is more obvious: sometimes first instincts actually are correct.
