Over the last four decades, womens history has developed from a new and marginal approach to history to an established and flourishing area of the discipline taught in all history departments. Clio in the Classroom makes accessible the content, key themes and concepts, and pedagogical techniques of U.S. womens history for all secondary school and college teachers. Editors Carol Berkin, Margaret S. Crocco, and Barbara Winslow have brought together a diverse group of educators to provide information and tools for those who are constructing a new syllabus or revitalizing an existing one. The essays in this volume provide concise, up-to-date overviews of American womens history from colonial times to the present that include its ethnic, racial, and regional changes. They look at conceptual frameworks key to understanding womens history and American history, such as sexuality, citizenship, consumerism, and religion.
