What do you really know the history? There is so much happened. Still have some events left a bigger impression than others.

Founded in 1999, the Commission de Rooy is to ensure that students would get more and better history teaching. They were afraid that a lot of students will not know more or Napoleon or Hitler before in history.

If you repeat things often enough it can make them easier to remember. Even if the information is offered in different, distinct parts shows that easier. Therefore, they shared the history in in ten different epochs.

In your entire school career you should treat these ten periods several times. The repetition makes you remember it easier. Pupils have to have dealt with once all ten periods in primary school. They also need to get the ten periods as teaching material in the first two years of secondary education. And in the last years of secondary education should periods be repeated again. In total you get so three times lesson on the time of prehistory, the time of the Enlightenment, but also about the modern age.

To the US easier to do them time boxes named after the features. So hot the prehistoric times the time of hunters and farmers, they call the lighting time of the wigs and revolutions and the modern time is the time of the television and computer. These names evoke an image on. This does a name like ' the enlightenment ': not so good. And if you have an image at that what you learn, learns that even easier.

Because the information is given in different epochs have you a framework for the information. The Commission de Rooy was hoping to get through the epochs can better remember what the order of different events. If you now so will learn about an important event in the history of the Netherlands, it is intended that you know in which this is happening. If you know the order of the different epochs is the easier to remember when this event took place.

But not everyone believed that you could remember the information better through the epochs. The format of the epochs would be not quite logical and also the names of the periods do not tell exactly what happened during that time. The Commission also makes das these periods a choice of all events. They look just to the events that have happened in Western Europe and the stories of women from the history come hard.

The opinions of the Committee on DAS have largely determined what every student should know the history of Netherlands nowadays. But because there are so many people criticize had there was still a new Commission met in 2006. This was the Commission of Victory.

This Commission has given a supplement on the opinions of the Committee on DAS. They have a list of 50 Windows. This list of subjects, objects, persons and themes is called the canon of Netherlands. Every student should learn these 50 Windows during the history lesson. The canon Windows appear in the ten periods that have already been drawn up. On this website you can find a summary of the history, divided into the ten periods which the Commission de Rooy has determined.
