If you’re not a historian or teacher, but once took a history survey, what do you remember “covering” in class? Do Calder’s criticisms of the typical history survey resonate with you? If you had to do it over again, would you prefer coverage or uncoverage?
If you’re a historian, what do you think? Would you be open to teaching the survey in a new way? Or does it seem that the history lecture has a pedagogical function that Calder (and Zambone) overlook?
