History, Critical and Patriotic: Americans Need a History That Educates but Also Inspires
Cohen, Eliot A.
Education Next, v20 n2 p8-17 Spr 2020
Particularly for Americans, patriotic history is a kind of glue for an extraordinarily diverse republic. Civic education requires students engage with their history--not only to know whence conventions, principles, and laws have come, but also to develop an attachment to them. This article looks at how American history should educate, but also inspire.
