Professor Heyrman will answer questions and lead a discussion on teaching about religion in U.S. History. The discussion will focus particularly on approaches to teaching this subject in U.S. history survey courses at the high school and college levels and include suggestions for resources or strategies.
Christine Heyrman, Professor of History at the University of Delaware, specializes in the social and cultural history of early America, particularly the relationships between religion and other aspects of experience, thought, and feeling. She is the author of Southern Cross: the Beginnings of the Bible Belt (1997) and Commerce and Culture: the Maritime Communities of Colonial Massachusetts, 1690-1750 (1984).
HISTORY MATTERS is a gateway to the Web for teachers of the U.S. History Survey course. It provides high school and college teachers (and their students) a starting point for exploring American history on the Web with a large number of first-person historical documents for use in the classroom, an extensive annotated list of Web links, and a range of teaching resources (including sample syllabi, teaching assignments, and forums). HISTORY MATTERS is a project of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning of the City University of New York and the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. The HISTORY MATTERS Web site was created with support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
