Doing Local History: A Case Study of New Brunswick, New Jersey
Marino, Michael P.; Crocco, Margaret Smith
Social Studies, v103 n6 p233-240 2012
This article provides a methodology that teachers can use to incorporate themes and ideas related to local history in their classrooms. Using the city of New Brunswick, New Jersey as a case study, the article offers different approaches that allow local history to be connected to wider themes in American history. The focus here on a small, relatively anonymous city shows that history can be found in many places, and that one does not have to live in a famous or noteworthy place to find compelling historical resources. The article concludes with specific suggestions that teachers can use in their own classrooms.
