Information on Angie Debo's books and publications


During the fall semester of 2009, the Oklahoma Politics class at OSU created a curriculum supplement entitled "Angie Debo's Oklahoma." Presented in the form of lessons with an accompanying teacher's guide, the project was developed for The Oklahoman's Newspapers in Education Project, which provides classroom materials for schools throughout the state. The Oklahoma Politics course was taught that semester by Dr. Bob Darcy, Regents Professor of Political Science and Statistics, and Burns Hargis, OSU President. The undergraduates in the course worked together to author the material that is offered in the supplement, which is hosted on The Oklahoman's website. Most of the lessons and activities the class created revolve around books authored or edited by Angie Debo, thus providing information on some of her many publications.
