27th Annual Student Engagement Forum Sociology Roots with Wings Oral Session
Tuesday Apr 17
12:45 PM - 2:00 PM @ Heth Hall, Room 022
The goal of “Roots with Wings” is to establish within the high school students’ “roots” of community relationships, intergenerational senses of self, and cultural appreciation, while providing them “wings” of technological skills that will be translatable throughout their future endeavors. The focus of this year’s project was on intentional communities located in or around Floyd County, learning about their ways of living, governing, sustaining, interacting, and teaching. The presenters will share their experiences as mentors, as well as discuss the impact of place-based education on the lives of the FCHS students.
