Selecting topics to be taught in American history courses,  selecting when they should be taught and what should be included in discussing the topic has provided educators over the years with many challenges and controversies.  There is no one answer because regional preferences and biases play a critical role in deciding the nature and content of course material.  Jamie Gass, a member of the Pioneer Institute joined Sid today in discussing some of the problems that surround such controversies.  One response that was offered that may neutralize the notions of regionalism and biases is to depend more upon reading and interpreting original historical documents rather than to rely on conventional American history text books.
