Alum Harris publishes second edition of, 'Reasoning with Democratic Values'

June 11, 2018
UW-Madison alumnus David Harris recently published the second edition of "Reasoning with Democratic Values: Ethical Issues in American History."

David Harris
Harris earned his master’s degree in 1970 and Ph.D. in 1976 from the School of Education's Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Now, Harris is a retired professor of teacher education at the University of Michigan.

Harris authored the book with Anne-Lise Halvorsen from the College of Education at Michigan State University and Paul Dain, a retired high school social studies teacher. The book was published by the nonprofit Teachers College Press of Columbia University, and the first edition was written by Harris and UW-Madison's Professor Alan Lockwood in 1985. 

The second edition contains more than 75 percent new content, and the authors have pledged their royalties to teacher education and are offering professional development for teachers across the country without fees.
