College of Education faculty Tarek Grantham and Meg Hines were recently featured in an Athens Banner-Herald story on community involvement in elementary schools.
The story cites the First-Year Odyssey course the pair teach at Stroud Elementary School, where students become "enrichment specialists" by working in small groups of students to promote creativity and critical thinking.
