ROSE MARIE L. BUKICS, Jones Professor of Economics, was honored by the American Educational Publishers Association for her book Reading, Writing, and Thriving: How to Make the Wall Street Journal a Key Part of Your Business Curriculum.
The association gave the book its Distinguished Achievement Award for excellence in educational publishing. The Journal saluted Bukics at its national meeting of educational sales representatives June 30.
Published last fall and distributed throughout the nation, the book offers college faculty insights on how they can incorporate regular reading of the Journal in economics and finance courses. There are 21 individual assignments involving the newspaper and tips on developing semester-long plans for using the Journal in introductory and upper-level courses.
A member of the Lafayette faculty since 1980, Bukics has been using the Journal in her courses for more than 20 years.
