Catching Up

It's been a busy time with a teacher workshop at the Liberty Memorial. Anthony with the Gilder Lehrman Institute is absolutely awesome - both as a teacher and a person. I also found out more about this great resource: Talking History. The entire run of programs is available for free online or, even better, ask your local NPR station to host it!

After this Kansas City workshop was finished, I headed to the east coast to meet the rest of the author team on a US survey text that will emphasize even more teaching the next time around. The curve is finally catching up to this outstanding group of scholars and teachers. Plus, the technology is becoming more user friendly.

Students in the teaching class made their first formal presentations yesterday - it's a great way to get them to fully realize that although they are expert students since most of them have been in school since they were 5, they are just beginning to learn what it takes to meet the challenge of being a good history teacher.

Once I catch up from grading and attend some meetings :-), I will be taking a weekend out to go here.
