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 gave a public presentation later in the year.The presentation was led by Robert Fenster of Hillsborough High School and James Washburn of Montgomery High School. Mr. Fenster was selected as the 2019 Teacher of the Year by the New Jersey Council for the Social Studies. The topic was Secession.
