U of A Faculty Receive Grant to Create Summer Institute for K-12 Educators

(January 30, 2020)

 University of Arkansas professors Sean Connors and Lissette Lopez Szwydky-Davis have been awarded a $160,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to co-direct a two-week summer institute for K-12 educators from Arkansas and across the U.S.

The institute will be hosted at the U of A from June 14-27 and all K-12 educators across the country are invited to apply to this interdisciplinary program.  The institute, “Remaking Monsters and Heroines: Adapting Classic Literature for Contemporary Audiences,” will use adaptations of Frankenstein and Cinderella as case studies to promote innovative uses of multimodal adaptations in the classroom.

All teaching disciplines and areas of focus are welcome, including language arts, world languages, social studies, science, technology, mathematics, art, music and media specialists.
