about

Historians and teacher educators nationwide are now engaged in discussions about the importanceof history teacher preparation. Interest within the history profession about the teaching of K-12history has increased significantly during the past two decades, particularly since the controversyover the National Standards for History's publication. This attention is evident not only in the historicalprofessions' various publications, but also in the federal government's multi-million dollarTeaching American History Program and the No Child Left Behind Act. Professional historiansare increasingly committed to improving the teaching of history at the K-12 level through manyforms of collaboration.History Education 101's thirteen essays are organized into three sections: context, practice, andnew directions. The essays' contributors, tenured faculty who teach history teaching methodscourses in colleges and universities throughout the United States, focus on how history educationhas, is, and will be taught to new K-12 teachers throughout the United States. Perhaps more thanever, it is critical for Americans to understand the role of higher education in the preparation of future middle and high school historyteachers. This book provides important insights for academics in history and education departments as well as other individuals whoare concerned with the status and improvement of history teaching in the schools, particularly current and future elementary andsecondary teachers and administrators.
