Swanson, Ryan A. – History Teacher, 2014
This study emphasizes an often overlooked avenue of inquiry in the increasingly escalating textbook debate: What is the relationship between the instructor, the students, and the assigned text?

Luckhardt, Courtney – History Teacher, 2014
For most students in the introductory World Civilization I course that Courtney Luckhardt teaches online, this is likely their first (and perhaps only) university history course. Persuading students that history is valuable, even just for the skills they need in critical reading and writing, is a difficult task. It is harder still when they view…

Murphree, Daniel S. – History Teacher, 2014

Voelker, David J. – History Teacher, 2008
Many assume that studying history will mean memorizing a mass of mind-dulling minutiae. Furthermore, they mistake history as relatively clear cut, as suggested by the maxim: "It either happened or it didn't." From their point of view, historians who move beyond simple chronicling seem to be throwing around mere "opinions." Unfortunately, the…

Fink, Leon – History Teacher, 2008
"Corporatization," etymologically, likens developments in higher education to those of the business world. Like shooting fish in a barrel, however, merely identifying the multiplying examples of for-profit extrusions, managerial models, let alone ideological legitimations of capitalist logic on university campuses hardly constitutes an honest…

Coughlin, Mimi – History Teacher, 2007
The active participation of women in the field of American history dates back to the earliest writings on the subject. The rich and long history of women writing, teaching and researching in the field of American History, however, is obscured by narrow disciplinary definitions of what actually counts as history and who is qualified to represent…

Crum, Steven – History Teacher, 2006
From 1900 to 1970, only eight United States historians established courses on Native American history in history departments at the college and university level.

Hoover, D. Sandy – History Teacher, 2006
Students often approach history survey classes with a significant degree of dread. Nevertheless, at least one history class is required for graduation from most, if not all, universities, and most students elect to take survey courses to fulfill that requirement. Students rarely enroll in an American history class eagerly, because they anticipate…
