Session Abstract

This “lightning round” session will feature short presentations by scholars engaged in the research and practice of history education at different levels and institution types, from high school through doctoral programs. Panelists will discuss the skills that students typically do and do not have when they begin history courses at each level, and where faculty try to move students on their watch. Following the presentations, session chair Anne Hyde will facilitate a conversation among panelists and the audience about history instruction and the “scaffolding” of history curricula within and across institutions as students progress in their study of history. Panelists will also address critical junctures in students’ transitions between different levels and institutions (high school to college, community college to four-year institution, undergraduate to graduate school and beyond).
