Prizefighters, Mediums, and Slave Auctioneers: Creating World Experts at Eagle Hill School


Add your own review!

Overview

Prizefighters, Mediums, and Slave Auctioneers grew out of an unusual high school history course. Rather than passively reading old history, World Expert students research and write new history--history never written before--on topics of their choice. And in the process, each student becomes the pre-eminent authority on their topic, and joins the community of historians by having their paper added to the collections of a world-class research library. This book presents excerpts from twenty-five World Expert papers, and provides detailed suggestions on how to run a World Expert course. It also seeks to inspire people to research the unresearched, to write up their findings, and to become world experts on their own.

Author Information

William Duncan was born in Newton, Massachusetts, at the dawn of the new millennium. His parents are Anne and Thomas Duncan, a teacher and portfolio manager respectively. From preschool to 3rd grade he attended Nixon Public School, but was withdrawn by his parents because of his lack of academic progress. With a newly discovered learning disability, he was enrolled in the Carroll School in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Upon graduating from 8th grade, he continued his disability-tailored education at Eagle Hill School. In his four years at EHS, he successfully dealt with these issues, and consistently held a 4.0 GPA. He was also elected student body president twice, and was captain of both wrestling and crew. He is currently a member of the class of 2022 at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, having been awarded their highest academic honor for entering freshmen, the Marquis Scholarship. Nym Cooke (A.B., Harvard College, 1974; M.A. and Ph.D., University of Michigan, 1990) has taught music, meditation, history, writing, and social justice at Eagle Hill School since 2004. His scholarly specialty is early American sacred music; an anthology, American Harmony, was published in 2018 and an historical study, Making a Joyful Noise, is in the works. Cooke enjoys conducting choruses and making choral arrangements.
