The Human Condition in the Classroom: Humanities Teachers of the Year, 2010 and 2009
Aired: November 28, 2010
From amateur archaeology digs to Shakespearean sonnets, New Jersey’s public school teachers are bringing their classrooms to life. Every year, NJCH honors the most dedicated and creative educators with its Humanities Teacher of the Year Award. In this episode of Humanities Connection, host Bob Mann talks to Jeanne DelColle, the 2010 Humanities Teacher of the Year and a world history teacher at Burlington County Institute of Technology, and Greg Woodruff, the 2009 Humanities Teacher of the Year and English teacher at Montclair High School, about what it was like to be named Humanities Teacher of the Year, the necessity of the humanities in education, especially in moments of economic difficulty and the vocational school of the future.
