Mark’s language skills and enthusiasm for text are just superb. What I liked best was that he challenged me content-wise when editing my writing. Mark is an excellent teacher, too. He explained all his edits very well.
Here are the history courses I have taught in and around Washington, DC, in the past twenty years or so.
Courses at George Mason University, since 2006
- Hist 100: Western Civilization — I have taught many different versions of this course, though not recently. Trained in European history and with only one semester to work with each time, I tended to focus on the early modern and modern eras, although sometimes I ranged further back. Glimpses of various experiments dealing with this difficult course can be seen in blog posts tagged Hist100. Another relevant tag is historical thinking. Some syllabuses: Fall 2009, Spring 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2013.
- Hist 314: History of Germany in the 19th and 20th Centuries — Each iteration of this course has been different, too, as I continue to learn and as our own times and needs change: Fall 2018, Spring 2017, Fall 2011, Fall 2010.
