Databases & Terms Searched: 

For a subject specific database use America, History & Life. Use ERIC for teaching-specific research and studies. Search terms used for Eric were "inclusive pedagogy." Try the following other subject/search terms for AH&L:

  • Students with disabilities
  • Special needs students
  • Teacher training
  • Training of special education teachers


The obvious trend in teaching American history since the Civil Rights Movement has been to teach previously unrepresented populations in the U.S. This is no longer a trend so much as an ever-broadening scope for research and study in classroom.
