This year marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of Salt Creek School. This month we will be researching the changes that have taken place in our community and our world since 1916. We will be utilizing the results of this research in the creation and production of an informational report on our topic as well as a visual display to help represent our findings.
With this project you will work in small groups to investigate areas of interest in which to become a resident expert. The students will have the opportunity to participate in preliminary research to narrow down their topics of interest before deciding on a final area in which to become an expert. We are lucky enough to have a wide variety of source materials from members of the Salt Creek Alumni group. These materials include: photographs, newspaper articles, yearbooks, Pickaway County information as well as information about Tarlton and the surrounding towns. If you know of anyone who has stories, photos or other materials to share please let us know.
I hope that this project will help you develop a greater appreciation for our school, our community as well as our world. We will also give us the opportunity to hone our research, report writing and presenting skills in a real world situation with the results being shared in a real world setting.
