NEH Award Recipient
Marklynn Bazzy, English teacher at Ozark Adventist Academy, has received an National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) award to participate in The Dickens Project at the University of California Santa Cruz this July.
The Dickens Project selects 16 teachers from around the nation to participate in a four-week study on a specific aspect of Charles Dickens' writing. This years' project will focus on the social, cultural, and historical setting of Dickens' Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities. While studying the novels, the teachers will also look at methods of teaching these novels on the high school level. Marty Gould, Associate Professor of English at the University of South Florida will direct this seminar.
