Dean of Humanities John R. Rosenberg awarded NEH grant

The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded John Rosenberg, dean of the College of Humanities at Brigham Young University, a grant of $122,210 for a schoolteacher seminar project titled “Art and Literature in the Prado Museum.”

Rosenberg directed a five-week Spanish-only seminar in Madrid, Spain, for 15 language teachers to study Spanish literature and art in 2004, and he will use the grant money to repeat this program in the summer of 2006.

He said most the grant money is used for a stipend for each of the school teachers selected for the program. The program is designed to give these teachers the opportunity to renew themselves intellectually, focus on a specific area of study and discover ways to adapt new material to their classroom setting.

The NEH sponsors seminars and institutes for public school teachers as well as university faculty. This is the sixth grant Rosenberg has received from the NEH for this type of program.

This year, the NEH awarded 124 grants totaling $19.8 million for teacher seminars and institutes, faculty workshops, challenge grants, projects to preserve Iraq's culture, exhibits in museums and libraries and programs in film, television and radio.

NEH grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Throughout the year, humanities experts outside of the Endowment and members of the National Council on the Humanities consider all applications and advise NEH on the quality and significance of each proposed project.

The number of times a teacher compliments or recognizes a student’s good behavior, compared to how often the teacher reprimands the student, the more likely that student is going to stay focused on the task at hand.
