The great challenge facing teachers of social studies or history that want to incorporate historiography into their teaching is that they have limited experience in historiographical analysis and writing. This could be due to the fact that their background is in a social science discipline other than history or that historiography did not make up a major portion of their undergraduate preparation. Before a teacher can use a technique, they must first understand the technique from the "student side." Go to this link by Mark Brilliant at U-Cal Berkeley and review the suggested guidelines for reading historiography. Now check out to this presentation by Hakan Özoğlu, Amelia H. Lyons, Amy E. Foster, and Connie L. Lester from UCF for some tips on how to write historiography. After reviewing these two links carefully, go into the scholarly history journals (Journal of American History, American Historical Review, etc.) and find an historiographical essay. What type of historiography was it - thematic (works around a topic) or an oeuvre (all works from one author)? What themes were explored by the author? What was learned about the politics around the topic or about the time period in which the histories were written? Post your response as a comment below.
