  1. Driven2Teach“Founding Fathers-- Founding Principles”

  2. Larry’s Vision: Teach the Teacher Driven 2 Teach “ David [McCullough] and I both believe it is important to educate people about our heritage. Otherwise, many of the freedoms we have had in America are going to be lost to future generations, and they won’t even know what they’ve lost. In some places, American history isn’t even a required class anymore—that’s a tragedy. With all this in mind, David told me about a program in his home state of Maine that took teachers to historical sites—the idea being that if you can get the teachers to experience history firsthand, they will become more knowledgeable and more passionate about the subject, and this will trickle down to the students. I took this idea with me back to Utah and grew it bigger. We call it our ‘Teach the Teacher’ program, or the Education Project.” Miller, Larry H., and Doug Robinson. Driven: an Autobiography. Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret Book, 2010. Print. (pg. 212)
