History as a subject has always been of great interest for young ones. It became a tradition that history should be so taught as not to add to school burdens, that it should be so taught as to suggest play and story listening rather than work and a boring subject. This book discusses various method and practices of teaching history. It offers also a few suggestions in the field of history teaching. It is hoped that this book will prove useful to all the students and teachers of history.
