Raleigh Werberger

High school history and humanities teacher in New York

I have been a history, philosophy and humanities teacher for 15 years. More recently I've also been designing workshops and courses for teachers and administrators interested in project-, challenge- or problem-based learning. I spent the 2013-2014 school year living with my wife in Stuttgart, Germany at an arts academy - and as a result, I've become interested in applying the artist's creative process to both curriculum design and student work in the classroom, from brainstorming to exhibition. My book, "From Project-Based Learning to Arts-Based Research: Lessons learned from Creating an UnHappy Meal", which details a year spent with my students re-creating a Happy Meal from sustainable local products, is available on Amazon.
