I have fond memories of the advanced placement history course I took in high school, not least because I earned 4 college credit hours by taking the AP history test. Beyond that, the class taught me to think critically and thus to write well. This blog at http://civilwarmemory.typepad.com details the struggles, triumphs, and research of a high school history teacher. I read it regularly and urge you to do the same.
For now, good night.
