Each semester, we spotlight an outstanding teacher who has made great contributions to teaching World War II. Teachers who are selected use creative, new ways to engage students and go above and beyond the call of duty to get their students involved in programs like National History Day, the Victory Garden Project and more!
Getting out of their chairs and into the community, Joe Boyle's students explore WWII in their own backyards!
Using unique primary sources, Lynne O'Hara's students explore WWII through the eyes of a soldier!
