I can't speak for teachers generally, but I can speak for my "type" of teacher and give suggestions as to what my type of teacher would want from such a conference or resource guide. I am a dually credentialed teacher in social science and special education so I teach a self-contained special education class in the areas of world history, US history, and government/economics. I work with students who have mild/moderate disabilities. They read and write below grade level, but they often comprehend or analyze material at grade level.
Welcome to H-World, a network for practitioners of world history. The list gives emphasis to research, to teaching, and to the connections between research and teaching.
As an editor of H-World, in addition to considering in person forums, I would appreciate if we could also consider interesting ways to utilize our new platform for such forum. Perhaps such a forum would take the form along the lines of our previous authors forums, with 3 or 4 people developing a set of introductory comments/presentations designed to get the rest of the list involved in the topic at hand.
Dear Daniel and Christina (and anyone else following this thread),
I'd very much like to hear from you (and others) about specific elements you'd find useful in a forum (here I presume on-line, as part of H-world) or a conference (which entails travel logistics and funding challenges to bring people together) that might be different from what's already available or scheduled.
This post below from H-HistBibl might be of interest to some in the H-World community:
H-World Community members might be interested in the article below on data and history. It seems to, at least marginallly, relate to this thread.
