New, Novice or Nervous?

The regular New, Novice or Nervous? feature in the journal Teaching History is intended to help new teachers or those new to history to locate key articles written about essential aspects of teaching and learning. Every problem new teachers are wrestling with is a problem other teachers have wrestled with too. Quick fixes don’t exist. But in others’ writing, you’ll find something better: conversations in which history teachers have debated or tackled your problems – conversations which any history teacher can join.
