Hearing and Seeing History

Robert Moeller
UC Irvine

The UCI History Project presented a series of seminars for Orange County middle and high school American history teachers that focused on techniques for introducing music and art into the history classroom. The seminars provided teachers with an opportunity to develop strategies for integrating music and art into their pedagogical practice. History teachers became better able to help students make connections—between the ways in which art and music shape the contemporary world and the ways in which art and music have shaped the world in the past.
