A thematic approach to teaching Local History (Face to Face) - Course Ref: 21SU05

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.
