Primary Research for AP US History

Students in Mr. Quigley's AP US History class are writing their thesis papers on topics drawn from the academy's history. They have been meeting with our archivist, Mrs. Dimodica, and using Archons, school catalogs (for curriculum offerings,) and headmaster correspondence as well as many other primary source documents. They have also meet with a librarian on finding secondary sources to support their research. We are all learning (quite serendipitously!) wonderful nuggets of our school's past and are looking forward to reading the completed papers.
