The Role of Higher Education in Enhancing History Education in the Schools.
Winkler, Henry R.
The paper advocates a closer working relationship between classroom teachers and the university faculty in the following areas: (1) teacher preparation for the classroom at the undergraduate level; (2) revision of some of the graduate training in history to focus more on pedagogical concerns, along with the content of history; (3) greater awareness and involvement at the university level in such initiatives as the Advanced Placement Program, the John Hays Fellows Program in the humanities of the '60s, and the National History Day Program; (4) an understanding by the university faculty of the reform initiatives underway in the local schools; and (5) participation in the discussions regarding the content standards of history.
