Calendar: “Talking History” On-line Forums from History Matters
February 2003 — Using Oral History to Teach U.S. History with Linda Shopes (Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission) as Guest Moderator
March 2003 — Teaching the U.S. Civil War with David Blight (Amherst College) as Guest Moderator
The discussions will focus on teaching these topics in the standard U.S. history survey course and suggestions for resources or strategies. Although the moderators will respond to questions and comments, we also hope that participants will respond to one another and continue the discussion after the guest moderator’s month.
