Screen Shot 2018-03-17 at 7.51.08 PM.png

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
