Best of ... Teaching Strategies
Teaching Montana History began in 2008 as the Montana History and Heritage Education listserv and has been published as a blog since 2011. That's a long time--so as we approach the new year, I thought it would be fun to highlight some older posts. Earlier I highlighted posts on elementary resources. Today the focus is teaching strategies.
