GPHS--Transitions/University Project with Minnesota Historical Society

A new project at GPHS is underway. Curriculum and Media Coordinator, Paul Creager, developed a partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) to have GPHS students interview elders about the development of the light rail on University Ave.

This spring, students at Gordon Parks High School worked with my two Freshman Research Award students on soundslides of local residents of the University/Midway corridor. One of the first finished projects is here. Take a look and listen!

The rest of the soundslides will become part of a permanent web exhibit at MHS in winter, but check back for more samples here this fall.
