HIST 118 PZ -Teaching U.S. History: Practicum

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course will examine both the politics and practice of United States history teaching. It will explore how the California State standards for U.S. history came to be and the sometimes problematic classroom relation between history and “social studies.” In the first half of the course, students will attend lectures and examine primary documents related to the period 1929-1945. In the second half of the course, students will prepare for and serve an intensive internship in a Pomona high school history classroom, including preparation and presentation of one lesson plan on the period we’ve studied.

Prerequisite(s): A prior college-level course in U.S. history (such as HIST 025 PZ/HIST 026 PZ) is desirable, but not required. Please also check the current course schedule for requirements.

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
