History Anecdotes for Teachers
I recently started a web site entitled "History Anecdotes for Teachers". I taught American History and Western Civilization for decades and one reason I retired was to leave a legacy. Over the years I collected a lot of stories and trivia to make my courses more interesting. And to give me something to look forward to each school day. I love telling historical anecdotes and found them effective in making history less boring for my students. Through the web site I will pass on all the stories I have accumulated over the years. And I am still looking for new ones to add. I have included a section on "Today in History" which has facts, trivia, and birthdays to encourage people to visit daily (or just on your birthday).
I know most of the people who visit this blog are not history teachers, but some of you might be history buffs or simply like interesting stories. I would love for you to check out the site and let me know what you think.
