Halloween Themed History Project Taps into Student’s Creativity.

Juniors tapped into their creativity along with their research skills this past week when they created historical profiles for people they admired. Students in Mr. Heshion's class were able to choose any historical figure that inspired them, their only mandate was that they become an expert on that figure. Required to use both primary and secondary sources and demonstrate the proper use of citations and quotes, students dove deeply into the lives of their chosen subject. For the visual portion of the project, they were then asked to condense the information and create a tombstone for their character, in line with the Halloween festivities taking place at CRB this week.
