Happy Teaching Tuesday!
Maybe more of an idea than a tip this week, but we were discussing the American Historical Association's “Long Overdue” obituary project yesterday and thought what a great idea for a class assignment. The New York Times also does something like this called “Overlooked.” Students could write up obituaries to highlight the contributions of people who may not have been formally acknowledged. The class could even combine and publish them in a newspaper type format.
If you've done something like this, we'd love to hear from you!
If you have a tip to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
