Today I learned that my next publication will appear in the pages of the journal, The History Teacher, which is published quarterly by the Society for History Education. I've been reading the journal for a number of years now. Along with the OAH's Magazine of History it is one of the best sources for classroom activities as well as other issues related to history education. Over the summer I presented a paper at the first biennial meeting of the Society of Civil War Historians on how I use Ken Burns's documentary, The Civil War, in the classroom. I thought it would make for a decent essay for the journal and, fortunately, the editorial board agreed.
