Presenter: Bob Schell
Room: CC 210
The "Oswego movement" revolutionized 19th century education in the United States by turning the spotlight on the student.  While most give credit for this contribution to the founder Edward Austin Sheldon, he gave the credit to his students and alumni.  In fact, Sheldon's greatest source of pride was to count himself as a graduate of the very first class from "The Oswego Training School for Primary Teachers" rather than a teacher or leader.  Sheldon's greatest strength was his ability to surround himself with students and faculty who were able to create classrooms and schools, thereby carrying the movement forward.  In this presentation, we will turn our attention away from the Founder and focus on the FOUNDERS: those who learned and those who taught in the early days of the Oswego Normal School.  We will become acquainted with Sheldon's teachers, classmates, faculty, and alumni.  These are the remarkable women and men who transformed Sheldon's vision into reality and forever changed the face of education in the United States and the world.  (watch the video)
