“For many of us (myself included) our experience with history classes before college consisted of memorizing names and dates. It was only years later that I discovered that no professional historian does this. My promise to my students is that I will never ask them to do something that I don’t do in my own work. History isn’t about names and dates, it’s the way to ask questions about the past and find the best answer. That’s what I want my students to learn.”
