Jason Laackman, one of our Learning Fellows, was honored last month as an outstanding graduate student teacher! Jason is a Learning Fellow in War Stories (COLT 64/CLST 11), taught by Dr. Roberta Stewart. War Stories examines military texts from the ancients till today, trying to understand what it means to be a soldier during times of war. Jason, in addition to being a Dartmouth graduate student and Learning Fellow, is also a vet. Together with Jonathan Kong, also a vet and Learning Fellow for War Stories, Jason has helped students understand the narratives of war from a soldier’s perspective. Thank you, Jason and Jon, for your support of War Stories and your dedication to Dartmouth’s teaching excellence!
