Ellis, David L.; Vincent, Mark A. – History Teacher, 2020
The moment many students begin to get excited about history is when they realize that much historical knowledge is contested, enmeshed in a productive argument that never ends and therefore endlessly fascinates. Such an epiphany might occur at any time. But a frequent catalyst is classroom debate, a formalized contest that dramatizes and vitalizes…

Sobers, Candace – History Teacher, 2020
Due to the particular experiences of the African continent and its peoples, and the myriad of ways these experiences have been interpreted, appropriated, and reclaimed, there are a pressing series of epistemological, pedagogical, and ethical challenges, especially for those who wish to include African content in predominantly non-Africanist…

Peterson, Andrew C. – History Teacher, 2020
As early as the mid-1970s, William H. McNeill, the father of modern world history scholarship, warned that the pervasive tendency for faculty to pursue ever-narrowing specializations, combined with a widespread distaste for teaching survey courses, will be history's undoing. In his mind, without concerted pedagogical attention aimed at both…

Shreiner, Tamara L.; Zwart, David E. – History Teacher, 2020
In recent years, disciplinary literacy has offered a promising approach to history instruction in K-12 schools.

Clabough, Jeremiah; Bickford, John H., III – History Teacher, 2020
There are significant apertures between the history told within historians' scholarship and teachers' curricular resources. The Civil Rights Movement (hereafter, CRM) of the 1950s and 1960s did not start with Rosa Parks' arrest in Montgomery, though it was a spark that inflamed a long-smoldering fire. Nor did it end with Dr. King's dream in…

Harris, Lauren McArthur; Girard, Brian – History Teacher, 2020
The culture wars concerning what history should be taught in U.S. schools are often played out through the release of new state or national history/social studies standards or the textbooks aligned with those standards. Despite their oft-politicized status, every state now has history standards. However, these standards take on different forms in…

Monte-Sano, Chauncey; Bordonaro, Anne; Aumen, Jared – History Teacher, 2020
Experts argue that preservice programs should focus on a defined set of core teaching practices and structure their curriculum around them. Such experts argue that practice-based teacher educators must "represent" and "decompose" core practices with novices and offer them opportunities to "approximate" those practices…

Bryant, James A., Jr. – History Teacher, 2020
When Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers football team, "took a knee" during the playing of the National Anthem, he outlined his rationale for protest: "this country stands for freedom, liberty, and justice for all.

Kornfeld, Eve – History Teacher, 2020
When the "for teachers" courses were first introduced at San Diego State University (SDSU) by Frank Stites in U.S. history and Ross Dunn in world history in the 1980s, they represented pioneering efforts to augment the History faculty's commitment to training K-12 teachers.

Otremba, Eric – History Teacher, 2020
Given that society combines a poor ability to predict future technology with a good ability to forget poor past predictions, the author decided to create a course on "the history of future technology." The initial idea was to simply showcase a litany of failed technofuturist attempts and projects, and, in so doing, teach students to be…
