The Newberry Library is looking for dynamic history educators in the Chicago area for a National History Project summer institute.
"Doing History in the Classroom:
Rethinking the U.S. History Survey Course"
June 25-July 19, 2002
The Newberry Library, Chicago
"Doing History in the Classroom" is funded by the National Council on Education in the Disciplines and is part of a national effort to build community betweeen secondary and college history educators. Led by staff at the Newberry and the Chicago Metro History Education Center, the summer institute will focus on research, writing, teaching, and peer editing. Institute participants will have time to research in the outstanding historical collections of the Newberry Library, and discuss their findings with colleagues who value teaching and research equally. Participants will receive $1,000 stipend, books, and a photocopy allowance.
Anyone teaching U.S. history survey courses or related fields in in grades 7-16 (that is, from middle school through early college) is encouraged to apply. We are especially looking for educators who already bring inquiry-oriented lessons into the classroom, and those who can work cooperatively across the school-college divide.
How to apply: send a letter on your school letterhead and a resume. The letter should explain your teaching experience and your research interest at the Newberry. Review of applications begins May 1 and continues until participants are selected. Mail or fax your application to:
