A Sense of Place: The Study Of Ann Arbor: Go Like the Wind Montessori Middle School City Study Presentations
Tuesday December 18, 2012: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room
Go Like the Wind's Middle School students have been studying how Ann Arbor functions as a city by exploring two guiding questions: "How does where you live impact who you are (and how do you impact where you live)?" and "How has the Huron River changed Ann Arbor (which has ultimately changed the Huron River)?" The students have been spending time with local librarians, historians, the mayor and authors; taking intimate tours of local historic buildings and museums; wading through the river to collect and analyze samples; digging through archival and primary source documents; and interviewing local business owners, professors, artists, musicians, city officials, and police officers. Now it is time for them to give what they have learned back to the community. On this special evening, each student will present their findings as follows:
Then and Now in Ann Arbor: A Walking Tour Vignette Before Our Time: The History Project Book Life in Ann Arbor: The Society Project Photo Montage Ann Arbor and the Huron River: An Interactions Lab and Public Awareness Project
Please join us to see these students present their outstanding work!
