About 150 juniors showcased their learning on topics of Illinois and Chicago history during the History Fair, hosted Thurs Feb 4 and Fri Feb 5 in the Library Media Center. Under direction of Social Studies teachers Matt Bellito, Amanda Carroll, Charles Mann, and Pam Dircks, the students have been researching their topics since October and present their knowledge as either a research paper, a website, a documentary, or a museum exhibit. Students whose projects are judged superior will advance to the next round of the Chicago Metro History Day competition.
