Crossroads: A K-16 American History Curriculum. The Post Secondary Curriculum. [Part Five.]
Council for Citizenship Education, Troy, NY.; Niskayuna School District, NY.; Sage Colleges, Troy, NY.
This U.S. history curriculum guide, based upon historical essays written by Richard B. Bernstein, is intended for postsecondary students. The guide incorporates an extended syllabus that sketches a two-semester survey course. This course provides students with a serious grounding in U.S. history. It also demonstrates the perennial contests over the meaning of the U.S. past among historians in particular, and among the American people in general. Assessing evidence, making an evaluation of arguments, and critical thinking skills are discussed. (LB)
