9780820455044: Go to the Sources: Lucy Maynard Salmon and the Teaching of History (History of Schools and Schooling)

Lucy Maynard Salmon was a pioneer educator with a progressive spirit. Having earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Michigan in 1876 and 1883, Salmon continued her studies under Bryn Mawr professor and future U.S. President, Woodrow Wilson. Thereafter, Salmon began her forty-year Vassar College career and earned a reputation as a nationally prominent historian, suffrage advocate, author, and teacher. She helped found the American Association of University Women, the American Association of University Professors, and the Middle States Council for the Social Studies. She was the only woman to serve on the American Historical Association’s Committee of Seven and the first woman to be elected to its Executive Council. An advocate of the new social history, Salmon’s teaching methods were novel at the time and continue to be relevant today. Indeed, Salmon advised students to «go to the sources».

About the Author:

The Author: Chara Haeussler Bohan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Baylor University. She earned a Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin, a master’s degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University. Her research on Lucy Maynard Salmon earned the Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation Distinguished Dissertation Award. She taught at Horace Mann School and William B. Travis High School. Reports of her research have been published in Theory and Research in Social Education, Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, Social Studies and the Young Learner, and Peter Lang’s forthcoming Social Education in the Twentieth Century: Curriculum and Context for Citizenship.

Review:

«Lucy Maynard Salmon was a leading professional historian long before many other women could claim the same. Her ideas about the nature of historical inquiry and knowledge, as Professor Bohan persuasively argues in this interesting and informed intellectual biography, are as fresh today in many ways as they were innovative in hers.» (Michael Whelan, Associate Professor of History, Montclair State University)
«Dr. Bohan’s deeply researched and well-written study on Lucy Maynard Salmon brings new attention to the work of a true pioneer in the use of original sources to teach history.» (Don Carleton, Director, Center for American History, University of Texas at Austin)
«Lucy Maynard Salmon was in the vanguard of historians and social educators concerned with expanding both the form and substance of history education as well as women’s place in the world. Dr. Bohan’s book offers fresh insights into this neglected yet important intellectual and feminist figure.» (Margaret Crocco, Associate Professor, Program in Social Studies, Teachers College, Columbia University)
