It was a privilege to have the historian Ms Parvati Sharma as a guest speaker on 19th Feb,2020 for a group of learners from grade 5 who are working on the theme 'Where We Are in Place and Time’ and learning about how Past Civilizations have shaped our Future, as part of their PYP Exhibition. Ms. Parvati Sharma has recently authored the book- ‘An Intimate portrait of Jahangir’.
Her session helped our learners to connect their learning of the past to different stories in history as evidence. She gave our learners a different perspective towards history. It was an eyeopener to know how facts are interpreted by historians. Learners were able to understand and learnt about what could be considered primary evidence while researching about different practices and systems of past civilizations.
Taking the learning forward, learners will review the sources of information that they have been working with, to make their research more meaningful.
