Making Invisible Histories Visible - Monday, October 26, 2015
Mr. Jordan Boyer, a history teacher at Central High School, had the privilege of taking part in the summer program "Making Invisible Histories Visible".  It is a program for incoming OPS 9th graders where they are given the opportunity to take part in a historical research project on a variety of topics from year to year.  During the summer of 2015, the topic was "Historical Landmarks" in Omaha.  Mr. Boyer's group, which was comprised of one college student (assistant), three OPS students and him, was assigned Picotte Elementary School.  More specifically, Dr. Susan Picotte and why there is a school in OPS named after her.  The students in the group did a wonderful job researching, writing, and going out to the actual sites throughout the two week project.  One of the days they visited Picotte Elementary and took some pictures of the exterior of the building.  Click on "Read More" to see their finished product!  read more ...
