The 2023 Pat Taylor Teaching Award goes to Dan Brown

Posted on

The 2023 Patricia E. Taylor Teaching Award for International Experience has been awarded to MLWGS social studies teacher Dan Brown.

Dan’s proposal is titled: Monuments, Museums, Memorials, and Architecture: What They Tell Us About Germany’s Evolution as a Social Democracy

Dan’s travel to Germany will include Munich, Berlin, Bonn, Cologne, Dachau, Nuremberg, and Potsdam. Dan will use his International Travel Experience to:

  • Trace the development of the four main systems of government that Germany has utilized over the past centuries as well as the forces that helped shape each government
  • Examine how Germany’s history and earlier forms of government influenced the development of the present-day government
  • Share with his students his deepened understanding of the historical context for the development of Germany’s current government; teaching them how to interpret monuments, museum collections, and architecture to make connections to contemporary Germany’s government and society

Congratulations, Mr. Brown.
