Students in Mrs. Brouse's American Government and World History classes gathered in the high school Literacy Cafe to work on "Declaration of Independence" timelines and a Roman Architectural project comparing and contrasting old verses modern architecture. Some students used laptops (high tech) while others created in a more traditional fashion (low tech). With either creation method, students enjoyed the project. Alyssa Byers and Mikayla Lloyd had this to say, "We like working in the Literacy Cafe on the laptops. It's a comfortable and more relaxing environment and gives us an opportunity to get away from the classroom. By creating a timeline, we researched and discovered the steps leading up to the completion and signing of this important document in our history. Project work allows us to express creatively and learn deeper." Mrs. Brouse uses project learning a lot because it hits all the different learning styles of all of her students. It also allows for more authentic learning and expression of knowledge of history.
