warrenWilson Warren, Gordon Andrews, and Sarah Drake Brown's essay, titled "Crossing the Educational Rubicon without the TAH: Collaboration among University and Secondary-Level History Educators," has been published in The History Teacher 46:2 (February 2013), 253-266.

The essay describes the decade-long collaboration among the History Department faculty at WMU and the Social Studies Department at Portage Central High School in Portage, Michigan.  The essay emphasizes how collaboration can be productive and long-standing without access to federal government funding.
