This webinar will describe an innovative approach to a research project on the Greensboro protests. Students at the Friends Seminary created an interactive display of archival photographs and explanatory texts that drew people from all sectors of the school community to the library. Students in younger and older grades, parents, staff and casual visitors came to the library, viewed the display and discussed it.Webinar attendees will learn not only how to develop a project focused on the Greensboro sit-ins, but also on how to structure a research experience that builds community and engages learners beyond the classroom.
