Teaching and Learning Materials
In the summer of 2021, Profs. Jennifer Black, Allan Austin, and Mary Kay Kimelewski were awarded a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PA Goal program) to rework Misericordia's introductory US History courses to use open-access texts in lieu of costly textbooks. Their goal was to make learning more affordable for their students, while increasing the range of voices represented in the US History survey courses. The attached teaching resources represent the fruits of their labors.
These discussion questions were created by Alyssa Chesek, Misericordia University History major, with contributions from Jennifer Black, Allan Austin, and Mary Kay Kimelewski (Misericordia University History Department), in the summer of 2021. Support for the project was generously provided by the Pennsylvania Grants for Open and Affordable Learning (PA GOAL) program, Grant #1.
