“Leelanau Revealed” will be an exploration of the history and people of the Leelanau peninsula. Students will have the opportunity to research while exploring evidence of the area’s past through written and photographic materials. This class also will have numerous opportunities for students to practice real field work as local historians would. We will work outside of the classroom weekly, taking advantage of our local resources. Journalism skills like interviewing, researching, and editing will be practiced. We will visit historic sites, speak with local historians, peruse Maritime museums, and spot archives. As the class progresses, students will focus their explorations and craft the research in an organized format to tell the story of Leelanau through their own lens. The final piece will be the creation of a book that documents students’ experiences and showcases the editing process in action.
