Baron, Christine
Journal of Museum Education, v39 n1 p10-19 Mar 2014
Providing training for pre-service teachers at historic sites necessitates a reorientation for historic site-based teacher education programs away from strict content learning towards programs that emphasize the modeling of disciplinary problem solving and transfer learning. Outlined here is a History Lab model for teacher education that uses the resources of the historic sites to help teachers develop analytical skills and integrate site-based learning into their classroom practice.
