WCHS Teacher wins summer fellowship
Hope Brown, a teacher at Woodford County High School, has been awarded a prestigious summer fellowship by the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio. The center is a highly regarded nonprofit provider of educational programs and resources for U.S. history and government teachers, as well as high school and college students. Middle- and high-school teachers chosen as Buchwald Summer Fellows participate in a rigorous week-long graduate-level summer course in Ashbrook’s Master of Arts in American History and Government (MAHG) program. The MAHG program is the nation’s only master’s degree program developed specifically for history and government teachers. Participants in the course earn two graduate credit hours from Ashland University. The full cost of tuition, room, board and books is waived for teachers receiving the Buchwald Summer Fellowship. “During their week at Ashbrook, the summer fellows study the ideas that motivated the people who have shaped our nation’s history by reading what these individuals said and wrote at the time,” said MAHG program Director Chris Pascarella. “The fellows then engage in small, discussion-based seminars led by nationally distinguished faculty, and engage with other teachers about the meaning and importance of the core documents under discussion.” The courses run from late June through July.
