Historical understanding requires a set of skills that allow learners to analyze and interpret historical events and trends. Here are some of the key skills that learners need to acquire: 1. Critical Thinking: This includes being able to evaluate evidence, differentiate between fact and opinion, and question the validity and reliability of sources (Schmocker, 2018). 2. Chronological Reasoning: Learners must understand the sequence of events and the interconnections between them. This includes identifying cause and effect relationships, comprehending the impact of a change over time or continuity, and being able to place historic events within a larger framework of history (Seixas, Morton, Colyer, & Fornazzari, 2013). 3. Historical Interpretation: This skill involves the ability to interpret historical accounts and materials, differentiate perspectives, and make educated judgments about credibility and relevance (Van Drie & Van Boxtel, 2008). 4. Research Skills: This involves identifying, finding, and collecting historical data. Learners should be able to navigate archives, libraries, and digital databases competently. 5. Communication: Learners should be able to express historical understanding clearly in written, oral, and multi-media formats (Seixas et al., 2013). 6. Historical Empathy: Understanding historical context and perspectives to explain how people in the past understood their world (VanSledright, 2001). References: Schmoker, M. (2018).
