As Christmas music wafts around me, I’m quite aware that it’s been awhile since the last post. My only excuse is that the last month of the semester has been really busy. The end is near, though, as I only have one more week of classes and then a week of final exams.
As I’m blogging, let me say that I do have some new content!
Over at the Religion in American History blog, I have a new post up on a teaching challenge I encountered in my American Revolution class this semester–how to teach about religious Loyalists. Not everyone supported the Revolution, and many who opposed it did it for religious reasons. The majority of these opponents were Anglicans, but Quakers and other groups could also fall into this camp. In my post, I elaborate on how I attempted to communicate a perspective that was largely foreign to my students.
