SULLIVAN, Ind., (WTWO/WAWV)– Sullivan High School National History Honor Society hosted their second annual History Fair.
Students displayed different events and people in history through various displays, essays, and poster board displays.
The fair’s theme for 2020 was “Breaking Barriers,” challenging students to think of different eras of history where barriers may have been broken.
Lynn Norris, Social Studies Department Chair at Sullivan High School, said it’s important for students to make meaningful connection inside and outside of a classroom setting.
“I started working with ISU History Department and Social Studies Education Department as a way to get students excited about history. As a teacher, that’s what I’m always trying to do is make some kind of connection with what they learn in the classroom that can be used to make a career out of,” said Norris.
Students were judged by other Sullivan High School faculty, in addition to Indiana State University students and faculty.
The fair is aimed at helping students learn how to conduct research and develop critical thinking skills.
