The Conference Committee for the AHA in Boston (2011) is hoping to promote panels on teaching. With that in mind the committee is interested in having people put together or participate in panels on:
1. Teaching religion. The focus of the session is on new perspectives or methods in teaching religious history across faiths, disciplines, and courses (survey to seminar).
2. Teaching American History Grants. While TAH grants often work closely with the OAH, the relationship with the AHA needs to be strengthened and ways found to intergrate a global perspective. If you have worked with a TAH grant in such a capacity or wish to share your experiences with working with secondary teachers, please consider a panel on this topic.
3. Teaching with Primary Sources and Thinking Historically in the Classroom. We are looking for creative and dynamic presentations on how to work effectively, efficiently, and dynamically with primary sources and promoting historical literacy among students--secondary to collegiate.
If you would like to be a participant or arrange a panel, please contact Dr. J.D. Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org with your prospective title, a brief (200-250 word) summary of your intended talk, and a very brief bio. The deadline for panels is 2/15 but we would like to have everything in place by 2/5.
