Roslyn Chair of English Selected for Humanities Advisory Council

The Roslyn School District is pleased to announce that English Department Chairperson Joshua Cabat has been selected for the National Humanities Center’s 2021-2022 Teacher Advisory Council. He is among only 20 educators, chosen annually, from across the country. Mr. Cabat will serve a one-year term and will help create and disseminate the K-12 Humanities curriculum innovations throughout the United States.

For the past two decades, Mr. Cabat has played a large role in creating the Humanities program at Roslyn School District, co-founding programs and courses with his fellow educators.

“Mr. Cabat is an incredible educator who cares deeply about his students,” said Principal Dr. Scott Andrews. “He has a deep interest in making teaching and learning come alive.”

In addition to his tenure at the Roslyn School District, Mr. Cabat is a founding member of Doc Academy, a non-profit website that provides a free curriculum to help integrate the use of documentary film in secondary classrooms. Along with Roslyn Board of Education Trustee David Seinfeld, he founded the North Shore Student Shakespeare Festival at LIU Post in 2020.

“I’m so thankful to the Roslyn School District for giving me the opportunity to help make the Humanities program an important piece of the curriculum,” said Mr. Cabat.

The National Humanities Center is a private non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to advanced study in all areas of the humanities. The Teacher Advisory Council helps create curricula on Humanities-related topics and helps disseminate this work across the country.
