My Research

I do research in two main areas:

  1. the history of the United States in the early nineteenth century
  2. the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
My recent SoTL publications include:
Designing a Question-Driven U.S. History Course,” co-authored with Anthony Armstrong, OAH Magazine of History, July 2013.
The End of the History Survey Course: The Rise and Fall of the Coverage Model,” co-authored with Joel M. Sipress, Journal of American History 97 (March 2011): 1050–1066.
Assessing Student Understanding in Introductory Courses: A Sample Strategy,” History Teacher 41 (August 2008): 505–18.

My recent review of Thomas S. Kidd, God of Liberty: A Religious History of the American Revolution in the Journal of Church and State is also available online.
