Students praise Goldman for the passion he brings to the classroom and how he brings history alive through anecdotes, fun exercises, discussions and the effective use of artefacts such as an original copy of a 1776 Boston newspaper. “While I’m always trying to make the material fun and interesting, it is also important to communicate to my students that the study of history is serious. It matters to me and it should matter to them too. The latter point can be difficult with history because the people and events we study can seem so distant to a 21st-century student. I work hard to make connections between the people and events of the past and the present so that my students can see that history has a relevance to their world today.”
