Teaching History in an Uncivilized World is the latest book by National Teacher of the Year Philip Bigler. It is a fascinating chronicle of his 23-year odyssey as a high school history and humanities teacher. Widely recognized for his innovative and exciting methods, Bigler explains how as a novice teacher he discovered the power of using historical simulations to motivate students and to help them become active participants in their own learning. These inspiring lessons proved highly effective in teaching important curricular content as President Bill Clinton would later acknowledge: "Through these historic simulations, his students have learned lessons about democracy and the meaning of citizenship, lessons we want every American to know."
Despite Bigler's success as a history teacher, he was laid off twice early in his career due to school budgetary crises. Growing frustrated and increasingly disillusioned, Bigler eventually quit teaching and during this three year hiatus, he received an advanced degree at the College of William and Mary and served as an Army historian at Arlington National Cemetery.
It was while working at Arlington that Bigler discovered that he missed the daily excitement of teaching history as well as the interaction with his students. In 1985, he returned to the high school classroom a far wiser and better educator. At BCC and McLean High Schools, Bigler taught a variety of history courses and was actively involved in implementing the latest computer technology into his instruction. As the yearbook advisor at McLean, he aggressively upgraded the publication's limited computer resources and introduced the editors and staff to desktop publishing. Widely respected by both staff and students, Philip Bigler was twice selected by the McLean High School senior class as their "most influential teacher" and was chosen as the school's Teacher of the Year in 1996.
In order to pursue his avid interest in the potential of educational technology to improve student learning, Bigler transferred to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in the fall of 1996. There he was selected as the Fairfax County and the Virginia Teacher of the Year. In 1998, Philip Bigler was named the National Teacher of the Year by President Bill Clinton who remarked, "We need more teachers like Philip Bigler - in every classroom in America today for it is they who can make our schools the best in the world."
As the National Teacher of the Year, Bigler was granted a one year sabbatical and traveled extensively speaking to various educational groups and organizations about the importance of teaching. He persuasively argues that "Civilization begins anew with each child" and that "if we fail to teach and educate our young people, we are just one generation removed from barbarism." Bigler advocates for a return of academic rigor to our nation's classrooms and the need for strong content standards. Bigler has appeared as a featured guest on The Late Show with David Letterman; Nightline; and the History Channel.
Teaching History in an Uncivilized World is an essential book for all of those interested in improving the quality of American education. It is highly readable and contains numerous useful appendices for history teachers. The book is supported by a regularly updated website where additional educational resources and lesson plans are available.
