Some of you might know that Ive been directing a three-year project for the National Endowment for the Humanities, designing lesson plans on U.S. history as part of EDSITEment, the NEHs site for teachers. Im happy to report that the first set of lessons designed under this project have been posted. The title is "The Proper Application of Overwhelming Force", and it deals with the military history of U.S. involvement in World War II.
If there are any high school teachers reading this, Id like to hear what you think. I hope youll also consider using these lessons in your classrooms.
