Witness Stones Project

by Heather Butler, History Teacher

Eighth Graders are going to deep dive into history as they will be the first to take on the Witness Stones Project for Madison!  Dennis Culliton visited our class on Friday 10/4 to share with us about this project that he started for Guilford and to kick-off what is going to be quite a memorable learning experience as we confront history about local slavery with civic engagement. 

Students will become historians and biographical writers, restoring history and honoring the humanity of enslaved individuals who helped build our communities.  Students will engage in a historical process of using primary documents (including 18th and 19th Century wills, property and probate documents, and church records.)

Stay tuned for more details to follow.
