Planning For Class Project

Even before classes have begun I have learned some interesting things about the City of Winter Park and the Fire Department. Winter Park is full of surprises (largest mall fire in American history!?!). I'm looking forward to having my students research and interacting with community residents and learning more about the civic institutions that we all rely on, but don't truly know.

  1. I am excited to begin our Historic Winter Park Project. I think it will be a great opportunity to learn more about this city's background. I am most looking forward to interviewing a retired firefighter. This will be a great interaction activity and I hope to discover interesting facts about firefighting. After reading our first article, I am starting to become more aware of the significance of firefighters and their contribution to society. I hope after this project that I have an even greater understanding.
