BATON ROUGE – Paul E. Binford, assistant professor in secondary social studies education
in the LSU School of Education, has authored “A Place Called Mississippi: Teacher
Wraparound Edition,” a ninth grade social studies textbook now available from Clairmont
Press. He also wrote the “Activities for Learning” section in the student edition
of the textbook.
“This textbook is on the state approved adoption list for the adoption cycle beginning
in 2013-2014,” Binford explained. “These two publications will directly impact the
social studies classroom experience of thousands of students and the professional
life of hundreds of social studies teachers.”
“Dr. Binford’s work on the teacher edition and the Learning Activities was written
with great insight and understanding of learners and teachers,” said Clairmont Press
President Tommy Lankford. “The quality of Dr. Binford’s writing was exceptional and
written in a style for teachers and students to be successful in learning the history
of Mississippi. I look forward to other projects written by Dr. Binford.”
Binford has more than 20 years of teaching and administrative experience at both middle
and high school levels in Florida and Indiana. He has authored a classroom simulation
on the crisis at Fort Sumter and journal articles on the history of social studies.
He has presented at several national conferences, and he has served as a consultant
on the social studies.
The School of Education is one of six schools realigned to form the new LSU College
of Human Sciences & Education, joining the School of Human Resource Education and
Workforce Development, the School of Kinesiology, the School of Library and Information
Science, the School of Social Work and the University Laboratory School.
