About Lawrence I.

Hello, I am a British historian and politician who came to the United States to reside with my wife, a professor of French, in l983, whom I had met while we were both graduate students at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. I'm a hardworking, affable and passionate scholar, writer, former teacher and lecturer. I taught both American and British students in a variety of settings--university, community college, high school, preparatory for many years. In the United States, I received very high approval scores in student evaluations. In Britain, my students were very successive in achieving very high scores in subsequent 'A' level examinations. I am interested in offering you a rather unique transatlantic experienced applicant, of over twenty-five years of training, broadcasting, and on-going publication in both World/Western Civilization, my major teaching interest and North American/Modern European History teaching, including top schools and universities in teaching acclaim, which you can verify, as well as dedication to CC and Adult Learners in first-time learning in the subject. In other words, I take the time to organize and even prepare diverse discussion, to provide unique primary resources including my own documents, tapes and rare overseas websites, to make sure that the subject is innovatively and above all critically presented. I have a strong background in teaching history, politics and Western Civilization, which has included as well a minor focus on geography and economics. I can offer obvious familiarity with school and other college transference and recruiting procedures, having done some substitute teaching at both the Missouri junior high and high sSchool levels and in interdisciplinary programs proficiency, I am committed to useful social science methodologies' applications and to a flexible interdisciplinary arts approach to history.

Perhaps I should end by saying that both in Britain and over here, my course evaluation returns have registered over 95% excellence of subject recommendations by students, and women and minority enrollments have, frankly, usually been way above indigenous white instructor counterparts because “you tell and provoke us as it is, or was!”
In curriculum and telecourse delivery skills, I can offer the standing that comes not only with being a self-starter but also a person who competed successfully against the previous British Conservative UK Government’s National History Curriculum Advisor for my prestigious Roedean School post in determination to have a broader and more European/Women’s History emphasis. In US terms, as a champion past instructor at many Midwestern universities, I am strongly committed to implementation of the twenty-first century Nash & Bradley History Curriculum Reform Reports which Congress had funded. Only by proceeding on such international, women’s and multiracial history approaches, can one sincerely give CC type students the type of education that will enable them to survive and prosper in the present and future world of diverse beauty and ethnicity.
