Ms. Pruett is part of the NITARP 2015 class.
Ms. Pruett was awarded the Swensrud and Kass Fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society for a curriculum project on Thomas Jefferson's architectural drawings. The fellowships allow her to spend a few weeks in residency at the MHS this summer (2015).
The NITARP experience inspires students to participate in research and inspires teachers to find a place in their work (either in a club, the classroom, or new programs) for authentic research. For me, personally, this year of working along with students to learn about black holes has shaped my pedagogical view that real research should be the basis for all science courses.
