About Guided History

Welcome to Guided History!

I launched this pedagogical adventure in the summer of 2012. Since then, all of my students have had the ability as part of an optional or required assignment (depending on the class) to create an online history research guide. Each student has access to a personal page on this website to exhibit his or her creativity and diligent research. The students are instructed, in essence, to create a properly introduced and annotated bibliography of digital and print sources on a topic of their choosing related to the class. It’s my hope that over time, by collecting the hard work of BU history students, Guided History will become an important research resource for students and scholars. Enjoy!
