Grant to fund history education

Dr. James Schul, assistant professor of education, has received a $12,603 grant from the Library of Congress Teaching With Primary Sources program. Schul and Dr. Russ Crawford, assistant professor of history, will work with teachers in the Allen East School District as well as ONU teacher candidates in a project titled “Unleashing Alternative Representations of the Past into Middle and Secondary History Classrooms.” The program consists of five workshops designed to show participants how to use visual and aural sources, taken from the Library of Congress: Teaching with Primary Sources website, as a means to create powerful social studies lessons for students in grades 5-12.
