The annual Midlothian High School Virtual Museum project is an example of students engaged in their work.
Students pick a research topic within the Virtual Museum’s theme. The theme this year was The Civil Rights Movement: The 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The students jump back into time and assume a role that is connected to that topic. They conduct extensive research, and their final products are presented, with a technology requirement, from the points of view of the assumed roles.
The projects are set up in the Meadows Library and MHS students, faculty, and staff visit throughout the day and are treated to the many interesting presentations.
The student in the picture was a reporter at the time of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
