Posted March 30, 2012
Kelsea Stockwell Turner, Middle School history teacher, has been selected to participate in the highly competitive Gilder Lehrman Summer Seminar on the Great Depression and World War II at Stanford this summmer.
“I am honored to have been chosen to attend this prestigious Institute," said Turner. "I look forward to studying with David Kennedy, a renowned historian, and developing units that will ultimately enhance my classroom curriculum.”
The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, founded in 1994, is a nonprofit organization that supports the study of American history through a variety of programs and resources for students, teachers, scholars, and history enthusiasts. The Gilder Lehrman Summer Seminars are designed to support and enhance participants’ commitment to high-quality history teaching.
"I am hoping to gain a richer, deeper understanding of the Great Depression and World War II” said Turner.
The seminars are offered at colleges and universities nationwide and in the United Kingdom and provide intellectual stimulation and practical strategies to take back to the classroom. Turner said that she is excited to share her experiences with the help of COIL (Center for Innovative Learning) with other SDS teachers. She intends to add to that library of resources by sharing lesson plans developed at the seminar.
