Steven's resume

Vita

CAREER OBJECTIVE

A position at a university, college, or community college, teaching on-the-ground
or on-line courses in the areas of United States History, History of Western Civilization, Introduction to Geography, American Government, and Education, that will utilize my strengths and talents to provide students with a successful and meaningful experience, while allowing me to pursue research and publishing opportunities in history and education.

EDUCATIVE PHILOSOPHY

I believe that higher education, whether experienced at a university, college, or community college, should serve multiple roles in a student’s life. It should be both
a capstone of previous learning experiences and a launching pad
for becoming a life-long learner.

First, higher education should convey scholarly content that is detailed, as comprehensive as possible, and empirically verifiable. Whether conceptual or concrete in nature, this content should be understandable to a student and presented in a way that invites
open discussion and encourages controversy.

Second, higher education should translate content to be a meaningful part of a student’s thinking and career activities. Information and ideas derived should be useful in a student’s efforts to understand the historical or contemporary world around her.

Third, higher education should complete a student’s citizenship training, begun in their elementary and secondary years in school. Along with conveying scholarly content, the higher education experience should contribute to his thinking, organizing, and communicating skills to be a participating member of society.

Fourth, how higher education is presented to students must be flexible in addressing their needs, learning styles, and circumstances. This is the important role that technology plays in teaching courses both on-the-ground and on-line. As with teaching on-the-ground, when teaching on-line, we must present a curriculum that engages our students, is relevant to their understanding, and retains participation.

ACADEMIC STRENGTHS, TALENTS, & ACTIVITIES

• I have a dynamic teaching style that incorporates lecture, whole-class discussion, and small-group work, allowing students to interpret and understand history and education concepts as well as learn the basic information provided. This approach invites high levels of student interest and engagement, while translating how the ideas and details of the content studied impact students’ lives. Using Discussion Boards and e-mail, I am able to convey my enthusiasm for the content and interest in their success.

• I am experienced in teaching both hybrid and pure on-line courses in United States History, World Civilization, World Geography, and American Government at the community college, 4-year college, and university levels.

• I have worked with elementary and secondary teachers around the country in content and teaching methods as part of the federal Teaching American History (TAH) Grant Program, involving: contacting school districts, planning and researching presentations, coordinating the efforts of other presenters, and assessing the adequacy of our professional development program.

• I have planned and implemented a self-directed, independent study program and facilitated student work in high school classes in History, Government, Economics, and Health, at two alternative high schools.

• I have taught United States History and the Social Sciences at a traditional junior high school.

• I have supervised pre-service teachers in my junior- and senior-high school classrooms, applying my experience and providing insight into pedagogic theory, knowledge, and methods for traditional and alternative students in high school and higher education.

• I have conducted research in Colonial American Social History for a PhD and currently am pursuing publication of a book and several articles based on the content of this research and writing.

• I am conducting research on teaching high school history thematically for an EdD, currently in progress, focusing on using source documents to enhance student learning, understanding, and interpretation of the history they study, with plans to expand this research into a series of thematic pamphlets to complement history textbooks.

• I have completed an historical study of the Boise, Idaho, fire department, entitled: A Community within Communities; A History of Fire Fighting and Rescue Work in Boise, City, Idaho.

BOOKS PUBLISHED

• I am currently finalizing a book for publication on the Boise, Idaho, Fire Department to be titled: A Community within Communities; A History of Fire Fighting and Rescue Work in Boise City, Idaho.
• I am negotiating a book for publication in military history on the North American Continent in the mid-18th century, titled: An Immigrant and a Soldier; Colonel Henry Bouquet in British North America, 1756-1765.
