Overview
The Tobin Project motivates and mobilizes an interdisciplinary network of more than 700 scholars in the social sciences, focusing their research and teaching efforts on understanding and solving significant challenges facing the nation. The group’s model identifies questions about key social problems, builds and actively engages scholars to produce new research on these questions, and disseminates findings in the public domain to inform debate and decision making. This grant leverages this network to create and disseminate a library of high-quality teaching cases across history and the social sciences that engage high school and college students, to foster critical thinking and decision making and promote civic learning.
