WWI: Art of WWI
November 2nd @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Teens and adults are invited to join Grants Pass High School teacher and past Oregon History Teacher of the Year Lois MacMillan to explore World War I during this three-part series at the Grants Pass branch on Thursdays in November.
To support the program series, community members are invited to view the “World War I and America” panel exhibit by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History on display during open hours at the Grants Pass branch.
Lois serves on the National Council of History Education and has participated in fellowships with Monticello, Ford’s Theatre, James Madison, and the Pulitzer Center. In 2018 she won Grammy Museum’s Jane Ortner Award for incorporating music in the non-music classroom. In the fall of 2018, she took a one-year sabbatical in New York City where she worked with Title I high school teachers and students in fourteen cities around the country on Founding Era curriculum, culminating in their attendance to the Broadway show, Hamilton.
This series is offered at no charge and is open to the public. A library card is not needed to participate.
