I am an education researcher and curriculum designer at the Center for Children and Technology in New York City, part of the non-profit Education Development Center. From 2011 - 2014, my colleague Alice Anderson and I evaluated Students and Faculty in the Archives (SAFA), the collaborative postsecondary education project which led to TeachArchives.org.

At CCT I have studied how teachers and students use digital archives for learning for twenty years. With the Library of Congress we helped develop the Teaching With Primary Sources program, which brings K-12 teachers and librarians from around the country together to create archive-based humanities lessons and activities. Our NEH funded website Picturing Modern America contains visual and historical thinking exercises for middle and high school students. With CUNY's American Social History project we have studied how hundreds of NYC educators have become better history teachers. And currently we are building Zoom In, a digital curriculum tool that helps middle school teachers build students' Common Core literacies in the US history classroom.
