The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies will hold its 5th Annual Summer Seminar for Arkansas Teachers on June 9-10, 2016. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize, participants will explore the work of the dozen-plus Arkansas authors awarded and nominated for Pulitzer Prizes. Teachers will leave with starter kits for lesson plans, including passages by the authors, related historical documents, plus samples of projects their students can produce and share as teaching resources for other classrooms.
