Historical Revisionism and its Effects on Student Comprehension | Hayley Ortwein | TEDxYouth@Jenks

Hayley Ortwein in her speech “Historical Revisionism and its Effects on Student Comprehension”, reveals the tactics used in schools to teach History. She explains why such lessons are even being taught and if the desired outcomes are arising. Hi, my name is Hayley Ortwein and I’m an eleventh grade student at Jenks High School. I have been an active member of the Jenks Speech and Debate team since the beginning of high school and feel incredibly passionate towards American politics and what role history plays in influencing political trends. As someone who will have taken more history classes than anything else by the end of senior year, the quality of that type of education is important to me. In my talk, I will discuss the problems in American High School Historical Education, and what potential solutions to those problems may be. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
