History Coming to Life!

Gender Studies Voices Unheard Living History Museum

Ms. Histen's  class created a living museum in which students became experts on an important historical figure. Students took and acted out the role of this person or taught about this person with the creation of a memorial. Our Living Museum is called Unheard Voices, as students will teach about people who have made history and whose identities are sometimes silenced or misrepresented by historical narratives. 

Many of the historical figures focus on women's and LGBTQ+ rights in the United States and abroad. Examples include: Aung San Suu Kyi, Kathrine Switzer, Geeta Phogat, Billie Jean King, Alan Turing, Sylvia Rivera, and more.

We felt so fortunate to host Ms. Histen and her amazing students. The students were well rehearsed, brave and true to their character. It was an honor to be part of this experience!


Exploring WWII through books

Freshmen classes are diving deep into WWII. Ms. Hale's classes are using books to explore various battles and campaigns of WWII. Students found that the books provided detailed information pertinent to their battle! It was great to see this work.
