Danville 8th (Kelly Henry, teacher) and 9th graders (Cassandra Macans, teacher) are involved in an ongoing Research and Postcard Project. http://bit.ly/ResearchDanville

Starting with questions and discussion on what tolerance means, the 8th graders also created a timeline, posted around their classroom, of intolerance over centuries. The 9th graders collect postcards from around the world (see Dec. 2013 card below), based on local Danville history when in 1939, Anne Frank wrote a letter and postcard as a pen pal to one of Birdie Mathews’ students.

GPAEA Media resources and the school library provide background for research on survivors.
