The Gateway Digital History Project (GRHProject) is has been a long time in the making, but my goal is to bring it fully to life in the coming year, beginning with a showcasing of stories from our staff, students, and community-members about their experiences during the COVID-19 closure. I'm counting on some of you to help me make this happen by building into your end-of-year curriculum some form of personal narrative / oral history project (written, oral, visual) to allow your students to share some of their (or their family's) experiences during the current closure.
Below are suggestions / Guidance to help you make this happen (should you wish to participate). I would, of course, be happy to provide support in the designing of projects, creating of materials, and the guidance of students during the project, should questions arise, if this would be helpful to you.
Please consider allowing your students to add their voice to the collected history of Gateway during this unprecedented time.
