Are fist project of the school year was about how we as historians can uncover and share stories about are community. To do this we worked with the Deep Cove Heritage Society to update their walking tour of Deep Cove.
To update the walking tour we decided to improve the already existing pamphlet as well as create an online map with more information. We also added more stops. To make all this we were each assigned one of the stops I received Seycove Secondary (my school). To create our markers we did lots of research then wrote a narrative about the history of the location, found a historical photo and made a digital enhancement. My digital enhancement was an interview with a former teacher at the school who had worked there for 34 years and has lived in the area since before the school was built.
Here’s the link to the online map of the walking tour: Map
The competencies for this project were:
We used this competency when researching the history of our location to make sure we included all the perspective that were presented and that we weren’t being biased.
