Let’s investigate the past! In this course, students will explore the region surrounding Long Trail School. Largely project-based, the class will connect with local organizations and groups of local residents, such as historical societies or longtime local families. Projects may include interviews, mapping of certain town sections or elements, archival work with photographs, and on-site research. While students will choose their own focal points for investigative work, selected readings about the area and about the importance of understanding community history will be assigned. This course truly allows students to design their own inquiry and to determine the method of communication for their newly acquired knowledge.
