The Tangible Heritage book prompts and supports discussion and thinking and discussion about the UNESCO tangible heritage criteria and what people might want to think about when deciding on what places, spaces, objects and architecture should or could bee considered worth preserving for future generations.
The text is a set of questions prompting thinking and discussion about the choices connected to classifying tangible heritage.
- Is heritage a place or time where people shared ideas long ago or even now?
- Is heritage a place that shows us how people made use of landforms in clever ways?
- Is heritage a place where people created unique ways of expressing themselves? Or recorded ideas that were important in a group’s history?
The book uses the thinking routine “What Makes You Say That” to support students thinking and discussions
