Bruce Lesh, Center for History Education, in the Carroll Eagle

Bruce Lesh, co-founder and consulting director of the Center for History Education as well as a history, government and politics teacher and chairman of the social studies department at Franklin High School, in Reisterstown, recently received a 2011 Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce Excellence in Education Award.

“I try to teach [students] how to evaluate evidence and make, substantiate and articulate an argument,” said Lesh, who has taught for 18 years in the Baltimore County school system. “These are the kinds of things that have longevity. If they forget particular facts, they can always go Google them.”

Lesh is also the author of the recently published textbook, “Why Can’t You Just Tell Us the Answer?: Transforming High School History Instruction.”

The Carroll Eagle profiled Lesh and his teaching style in a June 12 story entitled “History is no mystery for teacher from Westminster.”
