“Reading Like a Historian.”

20 01 2011

Me and about thirty of Pueblo’s finest social studies teachers got to spend the day listening to Sam Wineburg of Stanford. Besides explaining the teaching philosophy which you can read about in his most excellent book, he introduced us to a new curriculum resource that he and the rest of the Stanford History Education Group have been developing, “Reading Like a Historian.”

If you happen to be a secondary school teacher, you are officially required to hit that link right now. They’ve been counting on word-of-mouth to spread it around. Perhaps I’ll write more about what Sam told us about this and other historical matters at a later date, but for now, just consider yourself informed.
