Summary

This is the first issue of a newsletter for educators interested in new approaches to history teaching and learning, elementary school through graduate school. The purpose is to provide information about significant new ideas in history study, present a forum for analysis and criticism, and encourage similar analysis in existing professional literature. The issue contains articles which describe an innovative educational project centered at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School in Massachusetts; a unit on colonial life involving students in the outdoors and the community and emphasizing interdepartmental studies and a strong affective component; and a student project to write the history of a Chicago school founded in 1901 as an outgrowth of the progressive education movement. Four publications which explore local history, customs, and townsfolk are discussed in an article titled Community History: The Foxfire Project. Another article, Family Biography: A Guide to Resources, comments in detail on background, structure, and resources for family biography research. A bibliography and syllabi of three college courses on the subject are provided. (AV)
