History hits stage in Unadilla


Unadilla Valley middle school social studies teacher Dave Burnsworth said that about 15 eighth-grade students from a class he co-teaches to develop research skills are participating.

He said he’s been involved for about eight years. One group is entering a website on the fall of Rome, while an individual did an exhibit on New York’s role in the Underground Railroad. Other projects include a group exhibit about Jackie Robinson and the color barrier in baseball and an individual video on Title IX and women in sports.

Burnsworth said the program is a great way for students to do hands-on research on subjects in which they have an interest.

“It’s fun to see students be passionate about something historical,” he said.
