Teaching U.S. History offers an innovative approach to social studies teaching methods by bringing together professional historians, social studies teacher educators, and social studies teachers at the high school and middle school levels. The book highlights the best scholarship in American history, and then explores ways that this historical scholarship can be adapted and used by teachers as they teach students in social studies classrooms how to think deeply, critically, imaginatively, and independently about the nation's history. The editors follow teaching process into the classroom, seeing how teachers teach authentic lessons using the latest historical scholarship. Lesson plans are then commented on by social studies professors about their historical and pedagogical knowledge, choices, strengths, and weaknesses and by historians on the historical lessons and documents that teachers use, and on how their own thinking has been influenced by this exchange with teachers. This approach offers an unusual, even unprecedented, dialogue between scholars and practitioners, wedding historical theory and practice, historiography and historical/social studies pedagogy.Nine chapters are organized around key US History eras and events (The American Revolution, The Civil Rights Movement, etc) and are paired with a particular methodological approach (primary source analysis; oral history, etc.). Each chapter includes a short introductory narrative on the topic and method, along with a discussion of strengths, challenges, strategies; a few suggested key documents or artifacts; a lesson plan for middle school and another suitable for high school; commentaries by a teacher, a historian, and a student; and suggested readings and questions for further study.
