Collected resources

Below is a (continually updated) list of my favorite resources for teaching, both ones that I’ve developed and sources developed by other scholars.

  • William Cronon’s excellent primer for students, Learning to Do Historical Research, walks learners through the process of developing questions, selecting and evaluating sources, and revising questions.  Research is a mystery to many students and this student-developed source illuminates the messy, creative process.
  • Evaluating information with accuracy and a critical eye has never been a more important skill for students to hone.
  • I often point students to contemporary blogs for quick and thorough introductions to both interesting substance and good writing style.
