Joan Neuberger and Christopher Rose on the Good Day Austin set.
Joan Neuberger, Professor of History and Editor of Not Even Past, and Christopher Rose, Outreach Director at UT's Center for Middle Eastern Studies, spoke with "Good Day Austin" about their new podcast series, "15 Minute History." They developed the series for educators, students, and history buffs, who want short, accessible discussions of important topics in World History and U.S. History.
The discussions are conducted by the award winning faculty and graduate students at the University of Texas at Austin, on topics drawn from the new World History and U.S. History Standards—The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)—for K-12 social studies courses in Texas, and will be tied to specific objective and goals set in the standards to help educators prepare their students for the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness, or STAAR™ exams. The podcasts can be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in History. Each podcast will be accompanied by documents and readings related to the topic for people who want to learn more about the topic.
