Even #HurricaneIda couldn't stop the start of this collaborative effort. #FriendsSchoolBaltimore and #NannyJackAndCoLLC are collaborating on a groundbreaking new #UpperSchool senior history elective, #ArtifactualHistory, largely based off of my award winning book, #OldWestBaltimore.
The students, staff, and other faculty will be participating in an #ArtifactualJourney like no other with research, artifacts, analysis, and interpretation as they uncover Baltimore's #HarlemRenaissance.
A special thanks to Molly Smith (Upper School History Teacher who is co teaching this class with me & alumna from Class of 1982); Christine Pappas (Director of Alumni Relations & Engagement & alumna from class of 2001); Jocelyn Kehl (Director of Major and Planned Giving); Steve McManus (Upper School Principal) Renee Hall (Upper School Librarian) and Eleni Lampadarios (Upper School History Teacher).
Stay tuned for exciting updates on oldwestbaltimore.com; nannyjack.com; and the #ArtifactualJourneyPodcast.
As a proud alum, I can only wish that I had this opportunity back in the day.
With our first two classes completed, I'm thoroughly impressed with the knowledge, perspective, and interest the students have demonstrated.
