News Display: Joan of Arc in Orleans

Nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans", Joan of Arc was a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. At the age of 17, Joan led French forces on April 29, 1429 in battle against the English in the besieged city of Orleans. Inspired by the voices and visions of Christian saints, Joan of Arc led a series of military campaigns in the Hundred Years War. She was captured and sold to the English, tried as a heretic and burned at the stake in Rouen.

Our news display features stories about the life of Joan of Arc, her efforts to reform troops, and stunning victories, with application for the social studies curriculum.

Also be sure to see Joan of Arc: Enduring Power, an op-ed by Kathryn Harris in the New York Times.

To celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Teachers College, we will showcase one interesting story per day on the history and development of Teachers College, including its departments, programs and members. Drawn from major national and international newspapers, the display in the Everett Cafe will run for 125 days, Monday, February 4th-Friday, July 26th.

In addition we will continue our weekly displays of educational news displays on a wide range of topics, as well as our daily postings of headlines from around the world.
