In the last two decades, hundreds of scholarly books have appeared on public history, memory, museum studies, historic preservation, and related fields, but few have addressed teaching public history. A vast literature exists within the scholarship of teaching and learning, but these studies tend to examine classrooms from an altitude of 30,000 feet, and few address public history. We have a need for more pedagogical work on the teaching of public history, but we do not need more theory, jargon, or how-to-do-it manuals. What we need are stories.
