Teaching is one of the oldest of all professions, and the teaching of history one of the most important specializations. A strong society depends for its flourishing upon the extent to which its members have been well-grounded in a broad awareness of history of various kinds – local, national and general. A sound and balanced understanding of American history is obviously necessary for the continued healthy functioning of an effective democracy at home. But equally necessary is an acquaintance with world history in the widest sense – an awareness that the human journey has had (and will continue to have) many pasts and a many contexts. Teachers sustained by a broad historical sense will be able to instill in their students a sense of the richness of the past and of the many possibilities for the future.
