Writing in the History Classroom

Call for Submissions: Textbooks and Teaching, Journal of American History

How do we best prepare students to write historically? What role can and should history courses play in developing students’ skills to write for various publics, media, and careers? What do we learn about student writing through transdisciplinary teaching collaborations? How do we support the growing number of English-language learners while balancing the writing demands essential to our discipline? The contributing coeditors of the Journal of American History’s Textbooks and Teaching section seek articles and essays that speak to these and related questions. We particularly welcome submissions that explore evidence of student learning and engage the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Please contact us with questions or to discuss submission ideas. Deadline for manuscripts: July 15, 2020.
