Abstract
History is a unique phenomenon of human civilization. History helps to discover the past, besides history may also lead to a controversy and a long debate. The relativism problem which then often trigger the controversy in historiography cannot be separated from the element of subjectivity in history. Historiography as a work of history has a subjective nature, because of the interpretation and imagination that has been done by historians to compile the work of history. Controversy as part of historical work is natural, but it often gets constrained if controversial material is included in the praxis of learning in school. The role of educators is central to the controversial history class. Historical teachers should be able to act as historians of educators, with a vast mastery of historical material. Need a learning method that encourages the creation of critical learning, learners can take positive values in controversial historical learning
