Excellent resource.

I find it remarkable that, out of nearly a dozen Great Courses, I have yet to be let down.

Created for a video format

I was drawn to this course because I myself teach social studies at the high school level. Because Dr. Allitt also teaches history, I figured I could pick up a few content-related teaching strategies. I was not disappointed.
This course was developed to be versatile and useful for many teaching content areas though. I’m certain that I would have learned something even if I was a math or science teacher too.

Biggest things to be aware of:

1. The brunt of the content is directed towards teachers engaged in college seminar classes with lecture style. With the exception of maybe a few lessons, I don’t suppose much of this class would be relevant to a highly differentiated elementary classroom.

2. There are several parts of the audiobook which are almost comical because the teaching company clearly used the audio from their visual course and put it out as an audiobook. For the most part, this is not a big deal. However, there are several parts where Dr. Allitt will be interviewing people, the audio will make a break, and the narrator will switch. There are also parts where Dr. Allitt will refer to an image and direct your attention to a PowerPoint or image as well, which is obviously not there in this format.

Overall though, I really enjoyed this production. Dr. Allitt has several unique insights which are helpful and engaging. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is interested in expanding their pedagogy.
