Students Study the Civil War from a Technology Viewpoint

Students at Ed Sage School are studying the American Civil War from the viewpoint of technology. Students today are aware of how important technology is in our lives. They are drawing parallels between technology today and technology during the Civil War. Some of their viewpoint categories are: communication, transportation, weaponry, and medicine

“Bringing history alive to be meaningful to students is a challenge ,” said Beth Silver, Head of Ed Sage School. The end of their research results in two products. The first is a speech using 10 Power Point slides made by the students explaining their research, and the second is an essay of 7 paragraphs explaining their research findings.

This type of project allows students to use their creativity and their individual brain learning styles. The planning skills for this project are important. Students have to work toward due dates.

Ed Sage School is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year for grades 5-8. Contact Beth Silver, Head of School, to discuss your student’s needs. Contact Beth at 310-720-0390 or
