Re: ART: "High School History Doesn't Have to be Boring"

I believe most history teachers seek to make their class relevant and on the first day I tell my students I am not training the next great historian.  I am trying to teach them how to think.  Our discipline constantly has to deal with the question, "When am I going to use this?"  I try to explain that we are not getting ready for Jeopardy.  We are getting ready to be employable.  In an enviroment where STEM garners a lot of attention we must find a way to make ourselves more marketable.

New American History Podcast

Some of you might be interested in a new American history podcast. Called "American History Untucked," the podcast is a conversation about and by American history and American historians. It’s about history, but it’s also about the historian’s background, their experiences, what they’ve learned doing history. It’s about time in the archives, about the writing process, about teaching, doing public history, engaging with all different kinds of audiences.
