JASP+

Teachers Using Technology for Literature & Literacy

JASP+ leverages the resources available at the National Humanities Center (in Durham, NC) to offer unique pedagogical training and professionalizing opportunities to teachers attending the Jane Austen Summer Program (JASP). Select middle and high school teachers will win a scholarship to spend 2-4 days after the symposium working collaboratively on a digital, publishable project synthesizing ideas taken from JASP lectures and discussion groups. 

Preparation


The work will begin before JASP with Zoom meetings hosted by both NHC and a JASP representative. Teachers will select a topic or question to follow during JASP.  

At JASP 

Each teacher will pursue a different thread through the symposium and then work on a visual teaching tool at the NHC. They will also receive training in pedagogy and new software tools for the digital humanities.

At JASP+

JASP+ 2021 will focus on “mapping” different aspects of Jane Austen’s World digitally, and also on creating teaching materials that will make an interactive map useful for classrooms anywhere.

Future

Future JASP+ collaborations might center on using digital archives, digitizing manuscripts or other textual objects, or building interactive, annotated versions of the novels to bring into classrooms anywhere.
