ABSTRACT

This paper is conceived as an archetype of how pedagogy in history should undergo a paradigmatic shift and should reinvent itself by embarking an odyssey towards objectivity. History is often deliberated as a discipline that has the potential to overhaul the perceptions we hold towards our present and future. History by its very stature and holding should be deemed as threatening, to a person, society and all its amplified versions, once perverted.  This work intends to showcase the alarming trends an instructor in history should be concerned about and how these trends should be kept at arm’s length to expedite the imparting of non coloured history in our campuses.

KEYWORDS
