For the 2021/22 academic year, we have chosen a theme of the 'Past, Present, and Future of the Columbia River Valley (including Portland)'.  We feel this is an exciting, and relevant, topic for students to engage and develop a deeper understanding of their own community.

 

The first trimester will have students study the past of the Columbia River Valley and the various peoples and technologies that shaped our region.

The second trimester will have students study the present of their community and what changes have happened over the last thirty years that have shaped our current home.

Finally, the third trimester will have students study emerging technologies, challenges, and trends that will shape this community during their lifetimes.

We have created an online slide show for our 2021/22 academic year available here.
