Abstract

A unit on local hi story is of great value in that: • it scales down the content and process of historical studies. A small segment of the world is easier to understand than the whole continental land form or a large political division. • 1ocal hi story can be interpreted through use of objects and people close at hand. Local hi story has less of an abstract quality. ·local history is more relevant to students' lives and frequently more interesting to students. • once the processes of historical analysis are understood, they can be applied to other pieces of content in the social sciences.
