HOH Exhibition Students Learn from Primary Sources

     Recently, students from Horizons on the Hudson in Newburgh participated in a special end of the year closing ceremony as part of the school’s International Baccalaureate program. Students in IB schools between the age of 10 and 12, and who are in their final year, participate in Exhibition which is an extensive inquiry-based research project, with the guidance of mentors.      While researching their Exhibition topics, fifth grade students had a chance to conduct inquiry using first-hand information from primary sources. “Experts” were invited to meet and speak with groups to provide information, answer questions and provide additional resources. The “expert” guests and their topics were: Dinio Durkin - International Chair and Co-Chair, My Sister’s Keeper, Owner of Women’s Works for the Litter/Recycle, Equal Education and Child Soldiers groups
