The History Teacher publishes articles of three general types:

  2. Analyses of important interpretations, leading historians, historiographical problems, and recent trends in specific fields of historical research.
  3. Critical review essays on audiovisual materials, textbooks, and other secondary works suitable for classroom use.


The History Teacher also publishes reviews of audiovisual materials, textbooks, supplementary readers, and other printed and multimedia classroom materials, with evaluations of their scholarly reliability, formats, and effectiveness of presentation. Reviews are commissioned in advance. Readers interested in contributing reviews should contact Tim Keirn, Reviews Editor (contact information below) with their qualifications and fields of specialization.


The History Teacher asks authors to remove or redact their names and other specific identifying information in manuscripts under review.
