"I find that teaching online allows students to focus on themselves without the subconscious pressure of performing in front of others. The use of visual demonstration and detailed verbal cues encourages students to pay greater attention to the subtler tells of their body, and in turn gain enough confidence to be able to rely on themselves to know what is best for them".

This is not just history.
When my Nephew was still studying, he used to say to me that "History should be a compulsory subject throughout high school”. It was an interesting thought, but at the time, my opinion was close to being neutral because history wasn't my favourite subject at school as we annually regurgitated the Great Trek from a very white privileged perspective. More recently, in order to study, my daughter used me as her pupil and taught me her grade 11 and 12 history syllabus, which she loved thanks to a great history teacher. Interestingly, a large part of this ‘history’ occurred while I was living, but I was somehow totally unconscious of it, as it was not happening to and around me.
Watching this video had a huge impact on me. It is such a clear demonstration of how history is cyclical, and how, with the gift of technology, we can no longer claim a lack of consciousness. We are awake and we have choices. We are watching, in real time, the capacity of leaders to appeal to the darker sides of our fear-driven selves, yet we also know the joy and hope that can come with compassionate and truly unifying leadership. It reiterates the importance of our own choices as leaders and individuals in industries, communities, schools and homes, around being aware of what we reinforce: fear or hope? We are part of this process of creating history and can still alter its course, one choice at a time.
