Susan Jobe

LITTLE ROCK —Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas Department of Education, and state and national partners recognized 28 teachers, six mentors, and two super mentors last Thursday afternoon for their participation in year four of the Arkansas Declaration of Learning program.

Arkansas is the first state in the nation to participate in the program that gives educators the opportunity to create innovative units and lesson plans using historical objects and art from state and national museums. Through access to these artifacts, sixth-through-twelfth-grade art, English language arts, and social studies teachers and school librarians bring history to life. Unique to this program is the addition of a civic engagement project that extends the learning for students beyond classroom walls.      MORE
