Writing in the History Classroom
Call for Submissions: Textbooks and Teaching, Journal of American History
How do we best prepare students to write historically? What role can and should the history course play in developing students’ skills to write for various audiences, media, and careers? What do we learn about student writing through transdisciplinary teaching collaborations? How do we support the growing number of English language learners while balancing the writing demands essential to our discipline? How do we effectively teach writing online? The editors of the Journal of American History Textbooks and Teaching section seek articles and essays that speak to these and related questions. We particularly welcome submissions that explore evidence of student learning and engage the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Please contact us with questions or to discuss submission ideas.
Deadline for articles, July 15, 2020
