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
Our writing doesn't just happen in the classroom--it happens all over the national park and the city of Philadelphia. Students visit park sites, like Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell Center, Franklin Court, and more, for inspiration for their writing. They also take field trips to the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site and Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site. And the students write, and write, and write. Check out this sample syllabus.
The Project Write Blog
The 2017 blog is now active! Students use the blog to ponder the meaning of big ideas like liberty, equality, community, and power.
Project Write photosWe upload daily photos to our Flickr site throughout the summer.
