You'll grapple with the core questions of the unit: who are we, and who have we become because of the ways we connect? Working in a group, you'll create a museum exhibit that identifies what's worth preserving about your unique place in history, and you will examine other museum exhibits as you learn how to employ effective storytelling techniques in your own. Your final exhibit will consist of text, digital media, and other artifacts that help tell the story of your unique perspective as a group.
