First American Studies Summer Institute Held

AMST siOn August 4-6, the UConn ECE Central Office and Laurie Wolfley, the UConn ECE American Studies Faculty Coordinator, welcomed 15 instructors to the 2015 UConn Early College Experience Program’s three-day intensive summer institute on teaching interdisciplinarity and critical thinking in American Studies. At the event instructors listened to lectures, investigated items from Archives & Special Collections at the Dodd Research Center, collaborated on lessons plans and toured the galleries of the Benton Museum. Instructors walked away re-invigorated for the coming year and full of new ideas on how to effectively teach American Studies.

Pictures of the event can be found on our Facebook page.
