I want to share with you that I thoroughly enjoyed my three year fellowship with the AIHE, and believe I am the better teacher from the experience. My (4th grade) students benefit both from the variety of teaching techniques that I employ within the framework of my history lessons as well as the new methods for research that I now embrace for establishing background knowledge. Finally, the field experiences were huge in contributing to the “stories” I can retell and make American history come alive and meaningful for the 9 and 10-year olds I teach. I must (even) thank you for familiarizing me with the benefits of using Binary Paidea as guiding questions with which to frame my history lessons. It was a wonderful professional experience!
I hope that those thoughts will serve impetus enough to encourage others to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities the [AIHE] colloquia and field studies provide.
