I’m excited to teach Kentucky History this summer at UK. It’s always energizing to work with undergraduates. It challenges you to clearly convey the importance of the material in a way that writing for other academics often doesn’t. Students might not realize it, but teaching helps me as much as it helps them.
I have a fun syllabus planned, though some writing is required, of course. The summer course will even include local field trips, roleplaying activities designed by my colleagues at KHS and work with primary documents.
