I love speaking with my fellow high school teachers – and I am thrilled to have such an inspiring educator on the show. Chris and I have collaborated in the past, and I am looking forward to some upcoming projects – we talk about those AND how he gets his students actively engaged both in and out of the classroom. You’ll want to listen especially to Chris’s experiences with a Rogue Historian alum – Joe McGill…kind of a once in a lifetime thing.
We discuss (among other things):
- Technology and social media in the classroom
- The performative aspects of teaching
- Field trips!!!!
- Teachers Regiment – Civil War and Memory on Facebook
Chris offers some great advice for students…and I know you are listening out there – so pay attention 🙂 And…one last thing. Chris recommends one of my all-time favorite books, Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War by Tony Horwitz
