CARY, N.C. — Kenan Fellow Catherine Hart has been invited to help write educational materials for the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), an independent non-profit research institute that is dedicated to the study, spread, and strategic use of knowledge management in education.
Ms. Hart, an English teacher at Green Hope High School in Cary, will join a project to compile a set of informational texts that can be used to teach Common Core Standards for students in grades 6-12. She will also help to create exemplar lessons.
She will be working with a group of six teachers led by Dr. Julie Joslin of the NC Department of Public Instruction. Dr. Joslin served as a mentor to Ms. Hart during her Kenan Fellowship
project, “Creating a Virtual Library of Common Core Concepts for Site-Based Professional Development-ELA.”
Working with Dr. Joslin, Ms. Hart has helped to create engaging curriculum and model instructional practices for North Carolina teachers. Dr. Joslin recommended Ms. Hart for the ISKME
“I'm so excited that the Kenan Fellows Program has led to this opportunity,” Ms. Hart said.
