Hello, blogger enthusiasts- as you know, we involve our students with much civic and community involvement. This week, we were lucky to have the opportunity to learn some local history from an expert.
Ryan Haggerty, a professional photographer, videographer and Digital Media Producer at Work Hard PGH came to visit our center this past Wednesday. The class began with a slideshow of a collection of photographs encapsulating this area of Pittsburgh. Our students were thrilled to see pictures representing their very own neighborhoods, here in the Hilltop, from different eras in time. They were challenged to guess which areas of town they were being shown!
After some history and background, our students learned some basic map skills. Being able to follow a map and decipher local landmarks will be important for our next visit with Mr. Haggerty!
Stay tuned to see what comes next!
