Abstract

David A. Kolb believes “learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” (1984, p. 38). Adopting Kolb’s experiential learning in history lessons, I believe that it is important for instructors to work closely with learners to take constructive steps together for students to construct knowledge rather than presenting facts and receiving information. My teaching philosophy is to provide eye- and mind-opening experiences when they learn history by using the “4-‘re’” approach—reconstruct, reread, reflect, and research. The ultimate goal is for students to develop meaningful engagements with the past by witnessing firsthand historical events, working with various historical sources, and thinking critically about the historical issues.
