I am passionate about the role of history education in society and its significance for what it means to be human. I am curious about the start of history education.

History education in preschool

How do preschool staff and children do history?How does the teacher make history understandable to young children?How do the teachers perceive and utilize the children's interest in history in their teaching practice?

In my thesis I study how three different preschools with children aged 1-6 years old work with history. I try to understand how the preschool staff utilize the children’s interest and develop their interest in history. My thesis has an ethnographic approach to study the phenomena in situ.
