Reading Through History is a collaborative effort by two hard-working history teachers in the state of Oklahoma.
They have been producing resource materials and educational videos for history teachers since 2012.
Jake is sort of the "George Washington" of Reading Through History... the founding father, if you will. He is primarily an author for Reading Through History, and also produces RTH videos for YouTube. Jake is a graduate of Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK, where he earned a BA in History Education. He also has a Master’s Degree in History Education from SWOSU, which he earned in 2004. Jake has been a classroom teacher since 1999. He has taught US History, World History, AP Government, US Government, Geography, Oklahoma History, and Psychology at the High School level throughout that time. He currently lives and teaches in Woodward, OK.
If Jake is George Washington, then Robert must certainly be the "Thomas Jefferson" of Reading Through History. He is Reading Through History's primary editor, as well as writing fiction and non-fiction, and producing many of RTH's YouTube videos. He also manages RTH's social media accounts. Robert graduated from SWOSU where he earned a BA in History Education. He has taught U.S. History, World History, U.S. Government, Geography, Oklahoma History, World Studies, Art, and Music Appreciation at the middle and high school levels since 1999. He currently teaches at Blanche Thomas High School in Sentinel, Oklahoma.
