Hi,
My school district just offered a teacher grant, due October 26, 2012. There aren't really any specifics. So I am trying so hard to think of something my 6th grade students can do that will involve
---working with the community
--research
--filming
--video production
--??

Our city has a very outdated library, so I'm thinking something along those lines where the students will have to interview city council, the school district, business and the local community college

Any ideas???

Thank so much!!

I think you can frame your essential question along this line:
Is the community or outdated library still relevant to this digitized world today?

That's only thing I can think as of now. let see how others look at it.

Thanks, so now I'm playing around with:
**Community Voices: Considering community needs when building a 21st century library (something along those lines)
or
** A 21st century vision for a community library....
