What Meghan Bundtzen says about Awesome Stories:

I love learning the details behind stories I thought I already knew. While assisting in the development of Awesome Stories I am invigorated to return to my classroom and get students engaged in storytelling. My love of social and emotional learning connects so well with the idea that we learn through stories, that so much of history can be reviewed in terms of emotional responses and social misunderstandings. This archive of stories drenched in primary sources is a treasure trove for the modern teacher!
