Inspire Me! The Power of Words and Images
From July 15 - July 26, twenty teens will explore the power of language and images where some of the most enduring documents in American history were drafted. Project Write students will visit the past each day, discovering park sites and stories still relevant to the lives of American teens today. We'll end our journey each day in the present - blogging, tweeting and using digital images and video to inspire future generations. Please join us on this journey!
