Have been teaching at UNC since 1995

Research/Areas of Interest

My research focuses on identifying the cognitive and affective responses used by children to construct meaningful interpretations of historical time and change. For example, how do children learn to reason about life in the past in terms of a chronological order? How do they identify causes and consequences of events? How do young learners evaluate the historical significance or importance of people, places, and things?
