Everyone, even kindergartners, can do history, according to Knox College faculty member Catherine Denial, the lead historian for a program that is revolutionizing the way history is taught in our nation’s schools. Denial, assistant professor of history at Knox since 2005, has worked with the program “Bringing History Home” since its inception in 2001, serving as lead historian since 2006. This summer, she is leading workshops in July and August for teachers in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
