Appreciation for Betty Debnam

Betty Debnam, Carolina graduate, educator, and the creator of the award-winning Mini Page, is profiled in the latest edition of Carolina Connections, an online newsletter that highlights private giving to UNC. The complete archive of The Minipage was generously donated to the UNC Libraries by Ms. Debnam and is freely available online. LEARN NC has educator-created lesson plans that use Mini Page topics such as women in history, Buffalo Soldiers, black cowboys, flowers and pollination, the elections, and much more. Recently, LEARN NC offered a three-week online professional development course designed for K-12 educators that taught them how to use the Mini Page to enhance their instruction and students’ learning. Pre-service teachers at the UNC School of Education have also been learning about the Mini Page and the value of its use in teaching.
