Miller Middle School teacher Ann Jackson has been selected for an in-depth learning program on World War I from National History Day.

Miller Middle School teacher Ann Jackson has been selected as one of 114 teachers nationwide for the “Legacies of World War I” learning opportunity from National History Day.

Jackson, an Extended Learning Program teacher at Miller in Marshalltown, will learn more about the war through webinars and discussions led by college professors.  Jackson receives free tuition, graduate credits and materials for the online program.

Jackson said she was excited to be awarded a scholarship for this study.

“Learning new ways to present the research process to students for National History Day projects is always helpful,” Jackson said.

National History Day Executive Director Dr. Cathy Gorn said this program allows teachers to delve into the history of World War I.

“Jackson will learn about specific aspects of the war she can take back to the classroom to ensure this piece of global history is not forgotten,” Gorn said.

Jackson is in her fifth year at Miller Middle School teaching extended learning. She has helped guide two different Miller student projects to national qualifiers in National History Day contests and several other student projects to state-level achievements.
