“I’m in a department of fantastic teachers and I was really shocked … and honored to receive this award,” Crawford said during his acceptance speech.
Besides receiving a plaque in Chubb Hall and recognition among students and peers, recipients of the award are given the opportunity to teach a class that will typically be taught in Spring Semester 2015.

Thorne will teach a class called “Days With The Times: Thinking And Learning With A Really Good Newspaper,” in which students will sit down with coffee and pastries as they read The New York Times and write follow-up, analytical blog entries.

“I don’t think there’s anything more relaxing,” Thorne said of the class. “Facebook can’t pull you away, homework can’t pull you away; you get to sit there and read the newspaper and discuss it and have coffee and pastries.”
