Students learn best when they are engaged with the material. First and foremost, I think that the most important histories in the undergraduate classroom are those that are either underrepresented or not often taught. Through both my teaching and personal experience, I have seen that students are far more interested in history when they can see themselves represented in it. Additionally, I have found active learning techniques to be particularly useful, especially in smaller classrooms. I am also a strong advocate of using primary sources to teach course content - I often rely on them more than secondary literature when assigning reading to students.
