I work at Sunapee Middle High School in New Hampshire where I teach AP U.S. History and, as librarian, research and writing skills. As history teacher, I’m interested in projects involving big data, technology, and quantitative analysis. My history students have won a national award for this type of work, which I’ve written about here.
Some other things I’ve written can also be found online, including articles appearing in AASL’s Knowledge Quest, the OAH’s Magazine of History, and Rhode Island History. My online projects include Digital APUSH and, in the past, Serendip-O-Matic at One Week, One Tool.
I’ve presented on some of these projects, which center around digital history, to members of NDNP at the National Endowment for the Humanities and to teachers at technology and social studies conferences in New England. I’ve also presented to school librarians, mostly on library redesign.
My professional service has included work as grant reviewer for NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities, AP exam reader for The College Board, and book reviewer for Library Journal and the Association of College and Research Library’s Choice magazine.
