    Rich questions in history

    Andrew Savage, as HOD History at Wellington College, discusses how his department decided to place ideas at the centre of their courses rather than content. Andrew explains that history is a contested topic and there are multiple ways of understanding the past. Therefore, they engage students with rich questions that offer no answers, incorporate complex ideas, and ask the students to make decisions based on investigating the past and their own interpretations of the past.
