Developing historical empathy: Showing progress

Martyn Davison, Mary Hill, and Claire Sinnema

This article draws on an empirical study that suggests useful practical strategies for representing progression in history, especially regarding historical empathy. It also demonstrates how teachers can both guide and involve students in working with these representations, thereby encouraging students to make sense of, and gauge, their own progress. In doing so it sets out the case for educators having better knowledge of progression in the learning of historical concepts and better ways of showing that progression.
