Biography

Project Title: Understanding the World Around Us

Learning Innovation Grant Recipient

Students will be absorbed in our history and do digital projects explaining how the past has directly impacted our present. They will research, go on a field trip, keep a journal and have a guest speaker to help them develop their projects. To help them explore our past, students will visit EKU’S Geography Department, look at the special collections and meet with professors. Students will take notes, pictures, and videos (using the iPads) to develop their project. A guest speaker will also visit to answer more questions and give more information about their projects. Students will be given a detailed geographical theme to research before their field trip that will be presented in a school showcase. They will develop a rubric, do research, keep a journal and develop a digital project. It may include iMovie, PowerPoint and moviemaker. Journals will be kept throughout this project and will be turned in with their final project.
