Class of 2019 Current Projects
After spending the first semester of class diving deeply into the pillars of oral history, fine tuning our skills, and examining case studies, our teachers have finally handed over the reigns. In small groups we are deciding how to best put these skills to use for our school and larger community. Whether that means highlighting the people in our community we may overlook, asking our peers to reevaluate what they value, sparking conversations that transcend the typical divides, challenging ourselves to reexamine identity or empower each other to create change, we are finding new ways to share and honor the stories that matter to us.

A dedicated group of students created a ebook that explores the many perspectives of the Stagg High School community on love, the past and happiness. What they found in their interviews is a striking reminder of the way different perspectives and experiences can bring us together.
