With an emphasis on engaging students in historical inquiry, problem solving, and discussion, Engagement in Teaching History offers a wealth of ideas for prospective teachers of history. The book addresses the selection of content, methods of instruction, and ways to assess students’ learning.  By following the text’s guidelines for involving learners in historical inquiry, teaching toward chronological thinking, encouraging deliberative discussions, and using primary sources, teachers will ignite students’ innate “detective” instincts and encourage them to think critically about historical events.
