Bringing History Home in 2021

April 16, 2021 - 12:06 PM

History curriculum design and teacher professional development are the keystones of my vocation.  After seven years as the Social Studies team lead for Western Governors University, I could no longer ignore my compass needle's insistence that I again dedicate my full-time attention to Bringing History Home.  With a joyful sense of mission, in 2021 I said farewell to dear colleagues at WGU, so that I could return to working for and with in-service teachers.  

As a first step in this new phase of Bringing History Home's (BHH) development, I have applied for 501(c)(3) status, and registered BHH as a non-profit corporation in South Carolina.  BHH should be available for all schools, regardless of their financial capacity, and to that end, as before, I will seek grant funding to subsidize our work.  As we move ahead, I look forward to meeting curriculum directors, teachers, methods faculty, and historians across the Carolinas and the nation, to collaborate and continue sharing BHH research-proven strategies for engaging children in doing history. 

BHH has always been about teachers inspiring teachers, and students inspiring teachers.   Twenty years after the first Bringing History Home project began, here's to continuing that tradition of inspiration through a new decade and beyond.
