TCR Summer Program One

The just-concluded TCR Summer Program in San Francisco in June worked with serious secondary students of history from California, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Massachusetts, New York, Nevada, and Texas.

Students worked on a wide variety of historical topics of their own choosing, including U.S. media reactions to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Arran Islands and the Irish Literary Revival in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the role of World War II in the development of sound recording technology, Princess Fawzia and the Egyptian royal family, the experiences of widows of the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, and the Chinese civil service examination system, among others.

Some of the highlights of the program, in the words of students, were: "How much autonomy we had with our projects and our research,” “The sense of accomplishment at all the research I have done," and “the freedom to learn about something that interested me and really delve deep into my topic.” Other student comments included: "I enjoyed the library time the most. I never really worked in the library before this program and it was a different experience that really helped me complete my paper." “I liked the individual meetings with the instructors because getting personal feedback really helped!” "The chance to have individual meetings with the instructors was really useful.”

Next week the TCR Summer Program in Boston begins at Brandeis University.
