Historical Monologues in the Classroom: How to Make Kids Love History by Pippa White

Nebraska Public Schools, from 1995-2007

Keywords: elementary education, secondary education, history, language arts, research, diversity, social studies, communication

ABSTRACT

From 1995 to the present, teaching artist Pippa White has brought historically-based, one-woman shows into the Nebraska Public Schools to help students better understand history, language arts, social studies and interpersonal communication. She specializes in bringing these historical characters to life, speaking in their own words to describe their experiences. These programs include:

  • Far As The Eye Can See (pioneers and homesteaders)
  • Voices From Ellis Island (immigrant stories)
  • The Story of the Orphan Train (relocation of orphaned children in the late 1800s and early 1900s)

Her week-long, interactive residencies encourage student participation and research into historical events and personalities, and include dramatic recreations.
