Claire Tratnyek

PhD in History

Claire A. Tratnyek is a doctoral student in history studying the Boston Public Schools system, and the uses of images in history textbooks and museum curricula.  This summer, she will be the WGBH Education Doctoral Fellow, and will work on a project called PBS LearningMedia: Assessing the Present, Envisioning the Future.  Her work in this experiential fellowship will include assessing the impact of the PBS Learning Media platforms and curricula, working with the WGBH Education team to develop an interactive learning platform, and evaluating the current PBSLM US History curricula.  This work connects to Claire’s research on the development and content of history curricula, and to her background as a classroom teacher in Boston, where she taught for nine years.  Before returning to Northeastern for her PhD, Claire earned her BA in European History and Anthropology from Franklin Pierce College, and MA degrees in History and in Teaching from Northeastern University.
