Dr. Ellen Noonan
(American Social History Project, CUNY)
History Pedagogy Workshop: Lessons from the American Social History Project
Dr. Noonan was a digital humanist and a pedagogical innovator long before those terms became catch phrases and clichés. In this participatory workshop for faculty and graduate students, she will share some of the activities and insights she has developed during her extensive work with history teachers through the American Social History Project. Everyone is welcome.
Ellen Noonan has worked as a historian, professional developer, and media producer at the American Social History Project (based at City University of New York) since 1998. In that time, she has created and delivered classroom curriculum and professional development programs for hundreds of New York City public school teachers; she most recently designed and launched the online professional development program Who Built America Badges for History Education. She served as supervising editor of the third edition of the Who Built America? textbook and helped to create numerous history education websites, including HERB: Social History for Every Classroom; The Lost Museum: Exploring Antebellum American Life and Culture; History Matters: The U.S. Survey on the Web; and The September 11 Digital Archive. In addition to her work at ASHP, Ellen is an Adjunct Instructor of Public History at New York University and the author of The Strange Career of Porgy and Bess: Race, Culture, and America's Most Famous Opera (University of North Carolina Press, 2012).
