Save It!
historic preservation through political action
Does your area have an historic building or site that is threatened with destruction just as Constitution was? Divide the class into teams to research its history, investigate town zoning ordinances and town and state historic preservation laws, identify the key players in the site’s destiny, write persuasive letters to the editor, make a presentation before the town council and cover other aspects of the effort. Be sure the class has a vision for what they want to accomplish and a strategy for doing it.
