Discover the past through the archaeology and history of a mid-20th century Shotgun House! Examine historic photographs, artifacts, and primary documents. Explore the history of the working class, the meaning of neighborhood, and the definition of family. Take this back to your classroom and engage your students in a debate on a current civic dilemma involving archaeology, preservation, and the stereotypes we hold about the working poor. Use this curriculum in your classroom to fulfill Common Core Standards, while your students discover historical inquiry through engaging hands-on activities.
