Interpretation, Interaction, and Critique at House Museums
My latest post can be read over at Activehistory.ca. The post, “Interpretation, Interaction, and Critique at House Museums,” discusses using Anarchist Tags in the public history classroom as a way to teach critical thinking skills about heritage spaces and allow students to interact with heritage sites in a new way. Using the tags was a new experience for me and in the post I explain how they work and reflect on their effectiveness in the classroom.
A huge thank you to Will Hollingshead of the Ermatinger Clergue National Historic Site for his willingness to collaborate on this project and all of his creative ideas that he brought to our class site visit.
