Hi thanks
Yea applying for teaching and this was something that would be discussed. In all honesty finished my history degree ages ago and have never heard of these concepts. Good article great help. So first order is basically the event and second order is why that event took place and the different reasons etc?

I think so. I think its event and what happened v broader consequences and context. I had never heard of it before. I think I had always thought in terms of both and never understood why people were stuck on a shallow version of 1 i.e memorising without understanding what happened, never mind why.
