Students take historic journey.
Angela Stokes, director of JTHG's educational programs, has found that students who take this journey get the full picture of history by traveling through it and becoming part of it. Students are introduced and trained to use iPod and video technology to create iMovies and produce vodcasts (video podcast) of their journeys.
Stokes believes the concept can be duplicated in virtually any region with the help of local community agencies and strong school and business partnerships. Students pay tuition, which is determined by the travel expenses and entrance fees into parks and historic homes. School districts can co-sponsor and register students, and development costs are covered by partner sponsorships. For more information, visit the JTHG Web site (www.hallowedground.org).
