Hi. My name is Craig Divis and I am a high school History teacher in Bremerton, Washington where I teach World History and AP World History. I earned my undergraduate degree in 2003 from Miami University with a B.S. in Secondary Social Studies Education with minors in History and Political Science, and my Masters degree from American Public University with a M.A. in History in 2017.
I have been teaching since 2003 and have been the fortunate recipient of several honors, including being honored as the 2010 Vermont Teacher of the Year.
I was awarded acceptance into the Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching program during the 2011-2012 school year. With this Fulbright, I traveled to South Africa to study the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa’s history, including how it is incorporated into school curricula, how teachers are covering it in their classes, and its impact in South Africa today and in the future.
I regularly update this blog, so check back regularly. I will be posting on how my research is going, conversations with teachers, students, and ordinary citizens, my thoughts, reflections, and insights on my experiences, as well as plenty of pictures and resources.
