Transnational Perspectives on History Teaching & Learning

HIST 5332 | CRN 33467 | Jun 20 – Jul 01, 2011 | MTWRF 9:00 – 2:00 | LART 309


Over the past two decades, the subject of history teaching and learning has gained increasing scholarly attention in the fields of education, social studies, memory and historical consciousness, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. This course will survey the literature from various fields and across national contexts, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Estonia, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United States.


Students will be expected to read, participate in classroom discussions of the literature, write analytical and review papers, and apply theoretical findings to classroom teaching practice.


The course will be taught by Keith A. Erekson, assistant professor of history and director of the Center for History Teaching & Learning at the University of Texas at El Paso. He writes, speaks, and consults internationally on topics related to history teaching and learning.
