Big History's Greatest Lesson: How to Find Humility in Our Commonality.Origins: The Newsletter of the International Big History Association (2014)
I came to Big History as a scholar in a field of Educational Foundations. Foundations has a long history in teacher preparation programs, dating back to the 1930s, and involves an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary approach to the study of education, education policy, and schools. As teacher education programs increasingly succumb to pressures of high stakes testing and accountability, coursework in the history and philosophy of education has lost ground over the past two decades. Foundations scholars, such as myself, largely now teach diversity courses. That is, we work with students to explore issues of class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation as they impact teaching and learning in schools.
