Three cheers for our amazing Master Teacher Mike Biondo! He just won the Patricia Behring Teacher of the Year Award for Illinois. Read more about it in this Chicago Tribune article. Notice his interest in all things GAPE, answering that he'd love to go back in time to visit the 1893 World's Fair.
We've been working over here to review and select our participants for the 2016 cohort of Rethinking GAPErs. There were so many great applications and it was wonderful to see everyone's passion for the period and the themes we explore.
I'm sworn to secrecy until March 30, but thanks to all who applied! Keep up the good work in your classrooms.
