Looking Back on the Backwards Survey

In November 2012, CTE Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor of History, Caleb McDaniel, wrote a brief essay about his plans to teach his United States history survey backwards—by starting in the present and working his way back to 1848. After teaching it twice in slightly different forms in 2013 and 2015, he recently reflected on his experience in his personal blog. In this post, we are pleased to re-share Caleb's extensive and thoughtful analysis with our readers.
