Welcome to H-High-S! The primary purpose of H-High-S is to facilitate an ongoing discussion of curriculum, instructional strategies, and educational resources involved in teaching history, social studies, and related subjects in American secondary schools.
My name is Chris Eklund and I teach high school history in North Carolina
I would be interested in seeing discussions about lesson planning, keeping high school history academically rigorous, and the book reviews Josh mentioned. I'm a member of other H-net communities, and I glad to see this list revitalization and look forward to seeing where it goes from here.
I am Robert Siegel and I work as the Administrative Assistant for the CEO (Superintendent) of the Baltimore City Public Schools.
My current research, as an Independent Scholar, is to produce an annotated bibliography of biographies for youth about Andrew Jackson.
I have a BA in History and almost completed a MA in Ancient and Medieval History. I also have taken several Education courses at the Master's level.
