Goal: Present a creative piece to represent an element of Springfield's local history.
Description: In multiple stages over several months, students researched, developed, created, and presented their own original work portraying a facet of Springfield's history. Students selected one theme: from criminal backgrounds to women's history, then conducted archival historical analysis at the Springfield Heritage Center.
