WW2 and the Cold War, But I like many others a lot as well including Alaska history and south American history, and the older I get a study of the self (existentialism)
Why do you want to join our forum?
am interested in adding to the conversation about finding new ways to teach American history that encourages inquiry, uses primary sources, enhances citizenship, and leads to lifelong learning and study of history. (and to reflect on how much classroom teaching has changed in the last decade or so)
What do you do for fun?
read history and philosophy, listen to history lectures on CD, download, or on audible.com (I like to stop and smell the roses and reflect on the meaning of life)
