On June 19, 1771, the young, admired captain of the Regulators, Benjamin Merrill, and 11 of his compatriots were condemned to the gallows for high treason.

Shaffer, Robert – History Teacher, 2011
The chapters on the 1960s and early 1970s in recent editions of secondary-level United States history textbooks have done an impressive job in getting beyond the traditional political narratives of presidential administrations to include the movements of protest and reform based on citizen activism. But despite their laudable efforts to broaden…

Neuhaus, Jessamyn – History Teacher, 2010
An examination of prescriptive classroom films, particularly films made between 1945 and 1961, reveal a great deal about postwar society in general and youth culture in particular. Using these films in an undergraduate history course presents some very real problems, but the author argues that using them also offers instructors at least three…

Fuhrer, Mary Babson – History Teacher, 2009
On an April morning in 1775, seventy-seven Lexington farmers took a stand on their town common and started a revolution.

Perhaps because of…

Oesterreich, Heather A.; Conway, Allison P. – History Teacher, 2009
This article utilizes "Brown v. Board of Education," which is traditionally taught in college and K-12 history courses as the case that both started the discussion about and ended the practice of segregation in schools, to highlight "testimonios of coalition" as a framework for historical analysis.

Greenberg, Daniel J. – History Teacher, 2008
For educators, the anti-globalization movement has created a literature of opposition which offers enhanced opportunities for teaching critical analysis of neo-liberal political economy.

Reid, Donald – History Teacher, 2007
American culture glorifies the self-made man and this self-making extends to individual identity. The United States celebrates geographical and social mobility and the very anomie this produces is also the site of secular rebirths. In this essay, the author examines a literary genre that draws upon the American faith in self-transformation in an…

Tsao, Ting Man – History Teacher, 2005
In 1999, the City University of New York (CUNY) abolished remedial programs in its four-year colleges and began to rely on standardized test scores as criteria both for exiting remediation and for admission to bachelor's programs. By doing that, the university has in effect eradicated its three-decade-old "open admissions" policy, argue…

Chu, Jonathan M. – History Teacher, 2004
Advanced Placement brings into sharp focus the dilemma faced by middle, secondary and university teachers of American history.

With extremely…

Howlett, Charles – History Teacher, 2004
A school-year research experiment using primary resources to teach an important national issue--protest movements against the Vietnam War at the local level--is an excellent way to motivate students and energize classroom teaching. Every local community in America has its own story to tell about the war in Vietnam. Whether it is about a local son…

Frederickson, Mary – History Teacher, 2004
Many historians agree that the United States survey has been in critical need of a new paradigm for some time, a paradigm in which chronology does not dominate and students can learn about multiple viewpoints and competing historical narratives, one in which gender and multiculturalism are expanded beyond male/female, beyond black/white/ brown.…
