Assistant Professor of Education
Rebecca Corso joined Stonehill College’s faculty in August 2021. With almost 10 years of teaching experience, she utilizes both pedagogical theory and classroom experience to cultivate supportive, student-centered learning experiences.
Corso is an expert in secondary education, teaching and learning. She possesses a background in action research and a research specialty in culturally relevant curriculum and anti-racist teaching. Through her work, she seeks to upend harmful and exclusionary traditional narratives in American history courses in favor of a more inclusive and holistic picture of the country’s past. She is currently working on several projects related to culturally responsive and anti-racist teaching in secondary American history classrooms.
Corso graduated from Gettysburg College with undergraduate degrees in History and Secondary Education. She earned an M.A. in Education from Fairfield University’s graduate degree program, while working full-time as a secondary educator in Connecticut. She received an Ed.D. in Curriculum, Teaching, Learning and Leadership from Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies Doctor of Education program. Combining practical knowledge and concurrent experience teaching in a Boston charter high school classroom, Dr. Corso completed an action research study culminating in a final dissertation entitled: “Stories Matter: How urban charter school teachers seek to cultivate a more inclusive narrative of American History.”
