Face-to-Face Summer Course
A Thematic Approach to teaching Local History.
Mon 6th July to 10th July from 9:30am to 2pm
History is concerned with studying the political, cultural, social and economic structures of the past; it is not about memorising facts or the ability to recite dates. More importantly, it analyses trends and asks, why did these events happen in this particular way? Exploring the hidden histories of County Longford, learning can be fun whilst active. A key feature of this course is its exploration of the Longford countryside introducing you to a series of local tours which you can bring your own pupils on. If interested in Local History and learning more about County Longford then this is the course for you.
(Meeting at Melview National School, Longford)
Current Guidelines as of 15/06/20 state that people can travel “within your own county or 20 km from your home, as long as you can avoid contact. You should also practice good respiratory hygiene, keep at least 2 metres apart and do not share equipment. Wear face coverings in public places, such as shops.” There may be further easing of these restrictions before 1st July. However, it is up to each participant to ensure that they are compliant with whatever guidelines are in place at the time.
