In a story on the Big History Project in The New York Times, Bob Bain was quoted on the project’s approach to teaching history. “Most kids experience school as one damn course after another; there's nothing to build connections between the courses that they take,” he said. The University of Michigan team, led by Bain, has been involved in the project from the beginning, central to the work creating the curriculum and design. The story is also the cover story in The New York Times Magazine Education issue. Read the story here.

Bob Bain is Associate Professor, School of Education; Associate Professor, Department of History, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
