Elena Stevens

Hello, I’m Elena Stevens and I work at a school in West Sussex. I am really looking forward to working with Parallel Histories, in particular to develop a scheme of work for Key Stage 3 on the Israel-Palestine conflict. This is a topic that I have not taught before and so I’m really looking forward to delving a bit more deeply into the sources. I think for the students that I teach it will be a really good opportunity to develop their appreciation of the fact that history is never value-free and that there are always different ways of looking at things. By applying the Parallel Histories methodology, of looking at the history from both the Israeli and the Palestinian side, I think that students will be able to develop their understanding of the way that sources are used and also to develop their debating and discussion skills.
