Crandall wins teaching award

Cara Crandall, doctoral candidate in the College of Education's Language, Literacy, and Culture concentration, will receive the Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Award. This award, given annually to local teachers by The Harold Grinspoon Charitable Foundation, recognizes both the hard work and passion of those who work in the teaching profession.

Crandall has also been invited to write a chapter in a forthcoming book titled, “Opportunities and Challenges in Holocaust and Social Justice Education: Lessons from Teachers in the Memorial Library Summer Seminars.” This book offers best practices for teaching about the Holocaust with an emphasis on writing and inquiry and is connected to her membership in the Holocaust Educators Network (HEN), an outgrowth of the Memorial Library Summer Seminars, a nation-wide program that provides teachers with professional development and support in teaching about the Holocaust, genocide, and social justice.
