Wilfred McClay on Teaching American History, the Trouble with Howard Zinn, and ‘Land of Hope’
 

“Students should learn that history is not merely an inert account of self-explanatory details, but is a task of reflection that calls to our deepest sense of our humanity.”

Author Wilfred McClay explains the trouble with how American history is taught today, why a grasp of our history is so essential to being an informed citizen, and why there is a hunger for a non-partisan telling of America’s story.
