Each EXPLORE MORE page is an invitation to spend additional time and energy on the persons and historic locations featured in each VIRTUAL VIDEO VISIT. You are encouraged to post, present, or privately record your thoughts, reactions, conclusions, questions, innovative ideas, critiques, and/or concerns on social media, in one of your classes, in a journal, or in conversation…IF you choose.
This exploration is an opportunity to enhance what you already know, stretch your knowledge-base, and to just think more about the topic.
If you are motivated beyond this EXPLORE MORE page and wish to undertake a creative project at your school or in your community, a 1st Amendment-1st Vote facilitator is available to assist.
The Goal: TURN DISCOVERY into ACTION, now or sometime in your near future. Enjoy the journey!
