History Education In & Beyond the Classroom


Far from requiring students to merely memorize names and dates, the work of history education rests on a robust theoretical foundation that urges complex cognitive skills. This course is intended to help students form a strong grasp of major issues in history education, including its underlying conceptualization of knowledge and related disciplinary habits of mind, instructional methods aimed at handling controversy with sensitivity toward students' contemporary identities, and sociocultural forces that exert pressure on professional communities and curricula alike. While this course is of special interest to students with an interest in teaching history (whether in higher education, at the K-12 level, or at a museum or historic site), admission to the teacher education program is not a prerequisite for entry. Prerequisite: Completion of any 1000, 2000, or 3000-level Education course, graduate standing, or permission of instructor. Enrollment note: Undergraduate students must enroll in Educ. 4700, while graduate students must enroll in Educ. 6700
