I never tire of reading history or teaching it.
History is stories, and the stories are full of drama, human
emotions, thought-provoking choices, heroic and despicable acts, and
important lessons. Seemingly disconnected things connect. It
has been a great pleasure for nearly forty years to help students see those
connections and make sense of current issues.
History comes alive when you make the
connections. Enjoy history
anytime, anywhere with Professor's House audio CDs or mp3 downloads.
In June of 1805, Captain Meriwether
Lewis had to decide which of two forks was the Missouri River.
Fortunately, after nine days, he made the right choice and proceeded up
the Missouri to the Great Falls. Later, exploration of the Marias River
led the expedition to Camp Disappointment. Other choices are far more complex.
Historical events are not inevitable. There are always choices.
Historical understanding helps you make
sense of current events and make informed choices yourself. Please sign
my guest book for more.
