Annie McMahon Whitlock

After teaching middle school social studies for a few years, and spending some time in the corporate charter school world as a curriculum specialist, in 2011 I decided to officially jump in to academia. In 2013, I received my PhD in Curriculum, Instruction, and Teacher Education. I am now an Assistant Professor of Elementary Education at the University of Michigan-Flint.

I have a passion for elementary social studies education and how to make the subject more meaningful for young students. I believe that integrating social studies with other subjects, especially literacy/language arts is a great way to achieve this goal. I teach, read, write, and research in both worlds. This blog is about my writing process.
