Teaching Modern History by the Project Method: An Experiment


by R. W. Hatch - 1920

The Committee on History and Education for Citizenship of the American Historical Association has proposed for the tenth year a course in “Modern World History with emphasis upon political, social and economic development, showing progress toward world democracy.” Contributions to the wide discussion of the recent report of this committee have considered many aspects of the difficult problem of arranging a satisfactory course in history and civics for the schools of the country. Most of this discussion has dealt with matters of content. It is the purpose of the following article to present the question of method and to point out the possibilities that lie in the adaptation of the project-problem as a basis for teaching history, and at the same time to give along with it valuable training in citizenship.
