TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Advanced Placement U.S. History for the past 18 years. I have also taught some form of U.S. History course for the same number of years, and I've been teaching World History for the past six years. I've taught a political science course, an English course, and I've also been teaching a yearbook course for the past six years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I organize all of my courses in roughly the same format. Class begins with a journal that asks students a personal question that I try to connnect to history. Then, I spend 15-20 minutes on a presentation (30-35 minutes for AP US History) to get the students the information that they can use to do a vocabulary or review assignment. Course information is supplemented with current events and text book readings, thinking maps, and especially with document-based activities and class discussions. AP US history is supplemented with document-based questions, essays, discussion, and historical readings.
