The class of Paul Larue is in the state spotlight again
An innovative Washington Court House City Schools class is featured in the latest issue of the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) Journal magazine.
The statewide publication spotlighted High School teacher Paul LaRue’s Research History class. Students in the project-based, hands-on class have earned recognition for African-American Civil War soldiers, testified before the Ohio General Assembly, documented the lives of World War II veterans and unearthed history in their own community.
The class currently is researching local connections to Granville T. Woods, a Columbus, Ohio, inventor born in 1856. The history project incorporates elements of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Through grant funding, the class has been able to use ground-penetrating radar in a local cemetery as part of the project.
