PamphletWhich of the AHA’s pamphlets, Perspectives on History articles, web pages, and blog posts do you use in the classroom? Which AHA resources are your favorite or engage your students to most? We want to hear your success stories and other experiences you’ve had with AHA resources.

Do you have your students read pamphlets from our New Essays on American Constitutional History, Women’s and Gender History in Global Perspective, Teaching Diversity, or other series?

Perspectives on History
When you open the pages of Perspectives on History, do you turn to Masters at the Movies, look for  thoughts from high school teachers, find teaching strategies, or pull out articles on historical topics?

Perspectives on HistoryWeb site
When surfing the web site’s thousands of pages, do you go to online publications (like The AHA Guide to Teaching and Learning with New Media by John McClymer and Careers for History Majors), our archives of teaching resources (like the 2004 Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age projects or the Teaching Methods section), or use AHA presidential addresses from 1884-2011?

At AHA Today, the AHA’s blog, do you regularly check out posts about online resources (like lesson plans and digital archives)? Have you brought in the interviews from the Jobs & Careers section to your classroom, to teach your students about what to do with a degree in history?
