Professor Crocco's Research Honored

Margaret Crocco, Assistant Professor of Social Studies and Education, received the 1997 National Council for the Social Studies Exemplary Research in Social Studies Education Award.

She was presented the award at the general meeting of the NCSS College and University Faculty Assembly in Cincinnati on November 20. The award acknowledges, communicates and encourages scholarly inquiry into significant issues and possibilities for social studies education.

Professor Crocco's research on "Mary Ritter Beard and Marion Thompson Wright: Shaping Inclusive Social Education" was the award-winning study. The study examines the contributions of the two women to inclusive curriculum in social education. Beard established the field of women's history through her writing and public addresses. Wright promoted the application of black history in the schools through her work as a teacher educator and scholar with the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.
