The JuntoCast, Episode 3: Teaching the U.S. History Survey

The JuntoCastThe Junto is happy to present the third episode of “The JuntoCast.” In case you missed our first two episodes, “The JuntoCast” is a monthly podcast in which members of The Junto discuss issues of both academic and general interest related to early American history, pedagogy, and public history.

In the third episode, Juntoists Kenneth Owen, Michael Hattem, Roy Rogers, and Joseph Adelman discuss their approaches and various issues regarding teaching the first half of the U.S. history survey, including where to begin, where to end, what primary and secondary sources work well, and what are the survey’s biggest challenges.

As always, we encourage our readers and listeners to share their thoughts on teaching the survey, classroom exercises, and first-half of the survey syllabi.
