Coming this May: The History of Secession

This past summer, LWV of the Greater New Brunswick Area (LWVGNBA) sponsored two high school social studies teachers to attend a program at Harvard where they learned how to use the Harvard Case Method Project to teach history. The teachers will give a public presentation later this year.

The presentation will be led by Robert Fenster of Hillsborough High School and James Washburn of Montgomery High School. Mr. Fenster was recently selected as the 2019 Teacher of the Year by the New Jersey Council for the Social Studies. The topic will be Secession.

Please mark your calendar now for this special presentation

Please note: This is a participatory event. About a month before the meeting, participants will be emailed a link to materials to study in preparation for the evening. One does not need to be an LWV member to participate. Members of the community are welcome.

If you would like to register, please email Steve Lax at with your name and email address and put “Hillsborough Harvard Case Study” in the subject line to assure a spot.
