Local teacher wins summer fellowship


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Shannon Moutrie, a teacher at Goddard High School, has been awarded a prestigious summer fellowship by the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio. The center is a highly regarded nonprofit provider of educational programs and resources for U.S. history and government teachers, as well as high school and college students.

Middle- and high-school teachers chosen as “Buchwald Summer Fellows” participate in a rigorous week-long graduate-level summer course with other students enrolled in Ashbrook’s Master of Arts in American History and Government (MAHG) program. The MAHG program is the nation’s only master’s degree program developed specifically for history and government teachers.

“… The summer fellows study the ideas that motivated the people who have shaped our nation’s history by reading what these individuals said and wrote at the time,” said MAHG program Director Chris Pascarella.

“The fellows then engage in small, discussion-based seminars led by nationally distinguished faculty, and engage with other teachers about the meaning and importance of the ‘core documents’ under discussion.”

The Buchwald Summer Fellowships are named in honor of Jim Buchwald, founder of the Mount Vernon, Ohio-based Ariel Corporation, who provided funding support for the fellowships.
