A Closer Look at Meaningful Work
American Educator, v35 n4 p35-39 Win 2011-2012
This article presents an interview with Richard Luther of Tenafly High School in Tenafly, New Jersey. A 40-year veteran teacher who is retiring this year, Luther always assigns his Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History students an extensive research paper and integrates their research into their coursework and preparation for the AP exam. In this interview, Luther explains how he guides students through the research and writing process. A reprint of roughly half of "Young Hickory: The Life and Presidency of James Knox Polk," which Rachel Waltman wrote for Luther during the 2009-2010 school year and which appeared in the Spring 2011 issue of the "Concord Review" is included. (Contains 73 endnotes.)
