Reilly, Kevin, Ed.
This book contains portions of six model higher education introductory history courses designed and presented by experienced classroom instructors to the 1980 conference of the American Historical Association (AHA). After the presentations, the models were reviewed and critiqued. The models presented were: (1) "Toward Two-Sex History: A Model for the European Survey Course from the Renaissance to the French Revolution" (presented by C. Lougee and critiqued by S. Cooper); (2) "Restructuring the American Survey: A Focus Group Model" (presented by J. Lorence and critiqued by C. Hollister); (3) "Presenting History as a Policy Tool: An Introductory Variant for Preprofessional Students" (P. Stearns); (4) "Reading History: An Historical Classic as the Basis for an Introductory Course" (presented by J. Halsted and critiqued by M. Levitch); (5) "Introductory History as Topical Inquiry: The West and the World" (presented by K. Reilly and critiqued by D. Warshaw); and (6) "Introduction to Modern Urban Civilization through a Cultural History of New York City" (W. Taylor). The book ends with a discussion by participants summarizing the major themes and issues, and a conclusion by the AHA's former Teaching Division Vice-President, Warren Susman. (CT)
