What do historians do and why is it important? The work of the historian is absolutely vital to today's society. Understanding history is relevant to today's complex world. Historians may work in museums or for the government, but historians also conduct research. Learning to think like a historian is beneficial to future academic development. Primary source documents allow us to step into history and learn about it from the perspective of being there. Interpreting historical data,...
As a history instructor for adult learners, I feel very strongly that history offers so many benefits to students and it is never too early to start thinking like a historian, regardless of what a student's future holds. I work every day to ensure that history is exciting, relevant, and valued by students and parents alike because it has so much to offer in the pursuit of a well-rounded education.
All materials will be provided for the course, but students will need to be able to research historical topics, and though it is not required, support by parents for hands-on research, like checking books out of the library, would be a good exercise for learning research skills.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
I am very open to students choosing whatever historical topic they are interested in, and as such, sensitive subjects and viewpoints may come up in this course. For example, a student may choose to write a primary source analysis of a letter written by a slave girl who may have been mistreated in various ways. I want to encourage academic freedom, so will not limit students in regard to what topics they may analyze unless it is harmful to themselves or others or holds little historical value. Please contact me with any concerns you may have about the curriculum.
