Gabriel Reich, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Teaching and Learning
Special interest within the discipline of social studies education is the developing field of historical consciousness, which includes historical thinking and understanding. This sub-field of history and history/social studies education focuses on the ways in which young people come to understand history and to apply historical frameworks to orient themselves in the world. Within this larger sub-field, his work focuses on sites of collective memory such as state-sponsored history exams, public monuments and the secondary history/social studies classroom. His work with examinations has led to a related interest in validity theory and testing and accountability policies.
