A Living History Classroom Using Re-Enactment to Enhance Learning
Daniels, Mark L.
Social Education, v74 n3 p135-136 May-Jun 2010
This article describes how re-enactment was used to enhance learning in a living history classroom. Bringing a "character" into the classroom brought history to life. The students were learning without knowing they were learning. The author stresses that re-enactment methods cannot, and should not, be used all the time, or they lose impact. But if used sparingly, the methods can bring learning to life for the students in one's classroom. (Contains 1 note.)
