The LHS history department is working to develop a new approach to learning that goes beyond the textbook.
Jennifer Stillwell, 10th grade instructor, is creating an historical classroom collection comprised of artifacts and relics to give her students a hands-on approach to learning about history.
I am trying to build a classroom library from early America to the present. I want my students to have the opportunity to examine primary sources for information instead of reading it in a textbook. Artifacts are much more personal and give more accurate insight into our past. Our students will attempt to analyze and interpret everything collected”
Stillwell is asking the public for assistance in building the collection by kindly donating any historical or culturally significant artifacts they may have that are not in use. The donations would be used only for educational purposes and may also be donated on loan.
Donations can be made to the Logan High School History Department and can be delivered to the school or mailed to:
1 Wildcat Way
Logan, West Virginia 25601
More information can be obtained by contacting the school at 304-752-6606 or by emailing Jennifer Stillwell at: firstname.lastname@example.org
