Two years ago, I led GLI's summer History Camp for kids in the middle grades as we virtually visited National Parks for six weeks.
Last year, I was the Master Teacher for the summer teacher seminar about Colonial America, working with historian and two-time Pulitzer Prize recipient Alan Taylor.
This year, I will serve in the same capacity for the new seminar for teachers, American Environmental History, with Professor Catherine McNeur of Portland State University. This should be an interesting discussion about, among other topics, horses and pigs producing waste in the streets of antebellum New York City. Now there's a topic you can really sink your teeth into...but don't, because, you know, it would be disgusting.
