He was a powerful king whose break with the church of Rome would forever change the course of English history. But was he a charismatic reformer who freed his subjects from a corrupt establishment or a bullying tyrant who used Parliament for his own personal gain? Mark Robinson and Alex Gendler put this controversial figure on trial in History vs. Henry VIII.

Textbooks present a dry, dull picture of history, detailing mundane facts and dates that must be memorized. But, real history is learned when it is brought to life. Karen Nelson shares how her family brought a Greek unit study to life and gives tips for those who might not know how to make history interesting.
Parents should use textbooks as reference points to refresh their memory of historical facts. But when presenting those fact to their children, they should bring excitement to the table.
1. Set the Stage
Create a hook for your history unit study by starting with a field trip! Starting with something creative initiates both questions and interest.
2. Create a Parallel
Pull the past into the present by comparing the then and the now. How do the people compare? What about the culture?
3. Find Cause & Effect
History repeats itself. Finding out why things happened in the past can help us change the future.
Don’t just read historical information. Do it! Act it out! And watch it come alive for your students.

Teacher Orhan Seyfi Ari’s mark on the History of Education
Teacher and Idealist in
Teaching and Education..
the late Orhan Seyfi Ari
12 Dec 1918 – 17 Dec 1992
Teacher Orhan Seyfi Ari’s teaching, education reforms, this educator’s mark on educational and cultural history, his teaching, idealism, in education cultural reforms made him people’s Teacher of Teachers.
Editorial Halkin Sesi, 27 Dec 92: ‘…a luminary to many teachers…’
They named a street after this teacher… They hailed this teacher, his teaching, from Australia, Cyprus, Turkey, England… In poetry they sang of the teacher of teachers…
Teacher Ari’s teaching, school administration, educational leadership and reforms got this teacher invited in even retirement to give cultural and educational talks, view overseas teaching, teachers, schools.
A research writer wrote “Such nice things I have heard!” about this teacher, his teaching ~this teacher has left his mark on history of teaching, history of education, reformers -statesmen attended teacher Ari’s funeral, educators, teachers, school children bearing flowers…
Teacher Ari was a country boy; the pupils’ and people’s, ‘teacher of teachers’ (epitaph on his tomb), was born in Lapithiou, Paphos, in the, then colony, of Cyprus and raised with his cleric and teacher father Avni Esq.’s liberal views. His education & training was British: after secondary, high-school, education in Nicosia, he qualifying in school teaching at Teachers Training College, Morphou, the teacher of teachers also studied, and at a college was teaching agriculture, later mostly English, sometimes Greek, and, a scholar versed also in divinity & theology and interested in western & eastern philosophies & reformers, ethics –he wrote socio-political articles in Turkish, was reasonably versed in Arabic and in Latin.
With a keen interest in teaching, education, teachers’ continuing professional development through additional educational teaching courses and teachers’ seminars in England and Cyprus -in other disciplines mostly self-educated, well versed in pedagogy & educational philosophy (both western philosophy of education and theories & methods of education, and eastern) attaching importance to self-regulatory and self-improving systemising, practically beneficial as well as cultured and enjoyable teaching inspiring learning -and educational social psychology, teacher Orhan Ari, with highest praise for his teaching, school administration, educational leadership, some intellectual-literary, social influence, from quarters cultural, religious, political, educational, especially on, but not limited to, Turkish Cypriots, has left his mark on history of teaching, history of education, cultural, ethical, social progress of Cyprus.
The ‘teacher of teachers’, had been an elementary teacher, secondary school teacher, head teacher, lecturer; was a witty occasional socio-political columnist, in teaching circles and his club a debater on teaching and education, a thinker -in circle of friends mystic, poet.
Teacher Ari in spreading literacy, knowledge, light by teaching, education, was a true, courageous, leader to people ~this teacher’s extraordinary motivating skills had made him a choice also of British education authorities in pioneering educational social cultural efforts to advance the population ~he worked with village heads bringing water-roads-electricity, was active in preserving historic buildings, had interest in efforts of religious authorities to establish a cultural and educational basis for literacy teaching and improved education in orphanages -and in youth morality.. and now the young school teacher was debating, convincing, popularising secondary education, getting students, teachers, more and bigger modern schools with science laboratories and journal subscriptions, as well as finding and enabling research on, and collections of, poems and other literary otherwise lost works and to folk interested giving also their first taste of poetry.. when, while now Cyprus has a higher rate of literacy than in the United States and highest percentage of university graduates in the European Union, except for such efforts in their communities, many weren’t even interested in education.
Writers have seen teacher Ari as an eminent school.. Institute of Commonwealth Studies –Institute of Advanced Studies –University of London have archived this teacher in their library.. an overseas academic’s condolences are to the entire community of this teacher…
Teacher Ari was popular in both the Turkish and Greek communities during and after teaching at British schools classes composed of, e.g., English, Armenian, but mostly Turkish & Greek Cypriot students ~a Cypriot Greek author’s book refers to the beloved memory of this teacher, a Turkish Cypriot’s poem refers to this teacher as bringer of light to, waker up of, people who buried this teacher in their hearts -continues to inspire teacher Ari and his teaching…
After the island’s independence, while in the course of his community’s adapting to the Turkish system of education he appears to have been officially perhaps less appreciated, upon his peacefully passing away -as a cleric of a couple of years in his retirement to make ends meet, the press having praised his patriotism, the Leader of the Parliament of the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus described him as having made both the state and the nation proud as “A successful modern educator.. who will be, with love and respect, remembered always…”
Acknowledging his wife Suzan Ari (whose own death brought many condolences –including from overseas university teaching staff) as his great helper, teacher Ari had successfully pursued idealism in cultural & school teaching and education with a sense of duty as in his verses:
“Since to mourn and remember us there is someone
That’s what counts -we can assume our duty to’ve done”
After his death a street was named after Orhan Seyfi Ari in the Marmara district of Nicosia, in the Turkish sector, Cyprus.
The Inventors Of Modern Soccer – English Soccer History
English Soccer History – Early Days
It’s hard to determine exactly how soccer became so popular in England in the 19th century, but the truth is that in the mid 19th century, almost every major town had a semi-professional soccer team. These teams were usually associations of workers from the same factory or institution or simply students at a local University.
Matches between those teams were played occasionally, with little to no prize, but only for competition’s sake. However, these matches were played without any rules or a referee and as soccer isn’t necessarily a sport that’s completely clean of violence, all it took was a harsh tackle or an argument about a particular rule to start a bloody fight between the two teams and their supporters.
But the year 1863 marked an extremely important chapter in English soccer history, as several soccer clubs from all over the country (prominently from London) met up in the English capital and set up a sort of “soccer constitution” called the Laws of the Game (a modified version of the original rules are still in effect today and are still called as such).
That was also the birth certificate of the Football Association, or simply FA that is still ruling over English soccer nowadays and had a tremendous importance throughout the history of soccer in England and the way it evolved.
English Soccer History – Important Milestones
With England being rightfully considered the inventors of modern soccer, one would expect them to be amongst the most successful national squads in the World. However, despite having some world class soccer players throughout time and despite always being favorites for the competitions they start in, the English national squad only achieved few important milestones throughout the entire soccer history in England.
The apogee of English soccer and the most important chapter ever to be written in the entire history of soccer in England was definitely the successful World Cup run in 1966, a competition that was held on English ground, giving them the advantage to grasp their long-awaited trophy.
The 1966 team, captained by legendary Bobby Moore and with other key components such as Jackie Charlton or Geoff Hurst playing regularly, remains the best national squad in the entire English soccer history, especially since their success has not been equaled ever since.
English Soccer History – Modern Era
England is still a top team in Europe and throughout the World and has some players that are considered having world class quality, but the national team still has moderate success, despite being star-studded.
Recently, the form of English clubs overshadowed the poor performance of the national team, as Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool or Arsenal continue to be heavy contenders for each year’s European Champion’s League, the most prestigious club competition in the World.
Despite being happy with the respect English clubs impose in Europe, fans are still yearning for that long awaited European or World Cup which could mark a new important chapter in the English soccer history.
