About the content
This class provides secondary history teachers with practical guidelines for developing and delivering a history curriculum that will engage students and make history a relevant and vital subject.
The central idea of this course is to bring secondary history teachers together for an international conversation about how to teach history well. Throughout the course, teachers will be asked to participate in the discussion forums. Teachers will be asked to write personal reflections designed to help them clarify their own approach to teaching history and post reflective comments as a way to actively engage in the online conversation. At the end of the course teachers will be asked to create an action plan for use in their classrooms.
