Stewart receives Fulbright Award in teaching

PROVIDENCE – Upper school history teacher Jennifer Stewart, of Pawtucket, a teacher at Moses Brown School, has received a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching, which provides K-12 teachers the opportunity to take a leave of absence to do practical research abroad.

The Fulbright program’s mission is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries, and Stewart will use her semester abroad, in the spring of 2019, to study humanities instruction in Finland. Stewart is particularly interested in learning how Finnish schools achieve top international academic performance with low- to no-homework strategies. Stewart’s application was inspired by Moses Brown’s A.P. Comparative Government and Politics students.
