Middle School Teacher Selected as a Winner of a Gilder Lehrman Institute Contest

Middle School history teacher Kate Lukaszewicz was selected as one of the 10 winners of the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s inaugural "American History in 100 Documents: An Innovative Curriculum Contest."
According to a press release, teachers who participated in the contest were asked to create a lesson plan using one or more primary source documents in American History: 1493-1945, which provides K-12 schools, universities, and institutions –  including Harvard, Yale, and the Library of Congress  access to tens of thousands of rare letters, artwork, broadsides, and maps spanning six centuries of American history.
 
Kate picked a historic document from the institute's digitalized collection and developed a lesson plan based on that document for the contest. Her lesson is entitled, "If You Pay Taxes, Should You Get to Vote?"
 
As a winner, she will receive a cash prize and a one-year subscription to American History: 1493-1945, the fully digitized Gilder Lehrman Collection. The lesson plan will be available on the Gilder Lehrman Institute website for teachers who are members of the Gilder Lehrman Affiliate School network. 
 
Congratulations, Kate!
