High School Teachers Summer Institute

This week the Jonathan Edwards Center is hosting its inaugural Summer Institute for Curriculum Development.

Six teachers from four different high schools in Connecticut, Delaware, and Iowa are meeting together for three days to prepare a modular resource-rich curriculum for teaching Jonathan Edwards in a high school English course. We are trying to make Edwards readily accessible to students and teachers alike as an integral part of the landscape of American life and letters. To do so, we have teams working on things like a clear and concise presentation of Edwards' theological worldview, bridging the gap between Edwards' life and 21st century lives, annotating Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God so that it can be most effectively read and taught, etc. etc.

This is a very exciting and necessary project that we look forward to completing and sharing with the world. We'll update you as the project develops.
