2016 marks the centenary of two important events in Northern Ireland History, namely the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme. Both events have come to be seen as key moments in the history of both sides of a divided society. How these issues, amongst others, are taught can provide a number of obstacles for teachers to address. How can we teach controversial history in a responsible manner?
