Inspire Me! The Power of Words and Images
Each summer, Independence National Historical Park hosts a group of teens who explore the power of language and images in the place where arguments built a nation.
Project Write activities
Most years, our writing doesn't just happen in the classroom--it happens all over the national park and the city of Philadelphia. In 2020, the online experience included virtual field trips to park sites for inspiration for student writing. The program even included a virtual field trip to the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site. And the students wrote, and wrote, and wrote. Check out this sample syllabus from a previous year. The online experience included many of the same themes.
The Project Write Blog
Check out the Project Write blog. Students use the blog to ponder the meaning of big ideas like liberty, equality, community, and power.
