Launch of HMS Albion at Blackwall (1898)
E.P. Prestwich's footage of the launch of the battleship HMS Albion on 21 June 1898 looks deceptively serene and gentle. What it doesn't show is that when the ship hit the water for the first time, it created a wave that swept away a jetty, drowning an estimated 39 people in the process, one of the worst peacetime disasters in the Thames's history. The film is included in the new BFI DVD 'Tales from the Shipyard', featuring over five hours of documentary film revealing the history of British

Teaching as a career has distinctive features now that did not figure as prominently in its profile a generation ago. The features make it more exciting in some ways, as well as more challenging, than in the past. From a teacher’s point of view, the changes mean learning knowledge and skills—and practicing them—that were less important in teachers’ repertoires in earlier time

Historical Thinking Matters
For too many Americans, the history class in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (remember the teacher’s plaintive question, “anyone, anyone?”) is all too familiar. Our approach is meant to challenge this false and familiar image of history: understanding and reconstructing the past requires ways of thinking, reading, and questioning much more engaging and challenging than mere memorization. Teaching in a way that differs from your own schooling experience is not necessarily easy to imagine, let a
