Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ranging across time and topic, Berkin, Crocco, and Winslow have assembled an immensely useful collection of essays that will allow teachers new to the subject on any level—as well as some of us old hands—to refine their pedagogy and bring the study of U.S. women into the history curriculum in innovative and exciting ways. No one interested in teacher education and concerned with how we learn history can ignore this work."—Eileen Boris, co-editor of The Practice of U.S. Women's History: Narratives, Intersections, and Dialogues

"Clio in the Classroom: A Guide for Teaching U.S. Women's History is an invaluable resource for both high school and college instructors.... It is a starting point and a must have for the novice instructor, and a springboard for discussion and course enrichment for others."—Jennifer Aerts Terry, The History Teacher

"A wonderful resource...Partly historiography and partly a DIY course manual, Clio in the Classroom will appeal to both American history generalists and American women's history specialists." —History Matters, a publication of the National Council for History Education

"Central to the discussion of the place of women's history in the curriculum." —TeachingHistory.org

"A first-rate guide for high school and college teachers...the prose in each chapter is carefully crafted in clear, succinct language, and the editors have done a superior job of making sure the ideas in each of the chapters connect to the overall purpose of the book." —Theory and Research in Social Education
