Episode #14 Teaching History Beyond the Classroom with Chris Lese

Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 9.58.47 AMI 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
