Kate Charette

Kate Charette is an East-coaster, educator, mom, and military spouse. Her research interests include historical thinking in the K-2 grades, ways Imaginative Education can strengthen Social Studies and History teaching, educator professional learning, and online learning. She is particularly interested in how teachers use the elements of story to do Social Studies with orally literate students, and how the story forms we use in the classroom shape how we understand ourselves and others. The next research question she would like to pursue is: What elements of the imagination are elementary Social Studies teachers already engaging in the classroom, and what would they like to do more of?
