Surviving History: Gary Nash and the National Standards
Bingham, Marjorie
History Teacher, v42 spec iss p39-44 Jan 2009
In this article, the author recalls the first time she met Gary Nash. He came to speak at a Bradley Commission meeting and she was rather surprised to see him appear and to find out that he, along with Charlotte Crabtree, was involved in a National Center for History. She gives three reasons for her surprise which she thinks may tell aspects of Nash's remarkable career. The author also shares her views on the National Standards. She contends that Nash is to be admired for sticking it out in education, continuing with the Center for History in the Schools, engaging professional organizations in the schools, and continuing to produce textbooks and scholarship which provide teachers with the materials to update the field of history. (Contains 15 notes.)
