On Tuesday, November 9, 7th and 8th grade Humanities students at the Graham & Parks School collected stories about our city from fellow Cantabrigians. These stories addressed many aspects of Cambridge history and deepened students' understanding of what it means to be a part of this unique city.
Cambridge citizens who were interviewed included politicians, local business owners, homemakers, school employees, community activists, human service providers, and even a music teacher who shares his home with a (lifesize, fiberglass) cow named Darla. Many interviewees spoke about changes they'd seen during their lifetimes, and about what they think makes Cambridge so special. Students shared their learning with a public telling of these stories and a reception showcasing the student-created archives for an audience of teachers, parents, siblings, alumni, and community members.
