A rural advocate in Elliott Wigginton's Sometimes a Shining Moment (1985) stated that "the beauty into which you were born into is often the beauty you never see" (p. 53). This doesn't have to be true- schools can help people see the beauty of their communities. This presentation will highlight student created primary source social studies lesson plans that were created from a collaboration between a School of Education faculty member at Dalton State College and the Emery African-American Heritage and Multicultural Center in Dalton, Georgia. A few lesson plans will be on display for the audience. The intended audience is teachers and college faculty (especially those engaged in social studies).
