CHRS President Ken Basalik presenting his paper: Learning by Osmosis: An “Enhanced” ABC Plate at Explore Philadelphia’s Buried Past: The City and Beyond on Saturday, October 13, 2012. 

The event was held at the Kirby Auditorium in the National Constitution Center, 525 Arch Street, Philadelphia.

 Ken discussed children’s ABC plates, dishes with an educational purpose, and he asked the question:  Did the children who had this type of plate “eat it up”—or was the educational message lost amid the food on the plate?
