Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an introduction to Part IV of the book. In this part, the book moves away from research and editing to teaching. It calls attention to what has been seen as a serious shortcoming over much of the first century of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians: their neglect of the quality of history teaching in schools. It notes recent efforts to strengthen contact and cooperation among history educators of different levels.
