The Arizona Story - a 4th grade textbook

Are you smarter than a 4th grader ? Kyle McKoy told us her joys and frustrations as she embarked on the journey of writing a 4th grade History book at a Historical League meeting. The Arizona Historical Society staff, under the direction of Kyle, completed " The Arizona Story " in 2009. The textbook has received the 2009 Award of Merit for Educational Programming Excellence from The American Association for State and Local History. It has also received extraordinary acceptance from school districts across Arizona. Award winning author Jana Bommersbach wrote a Centennial article for the AZ Republic and applauded this textbook. We are very proud of Kyle and her staff.
