Students in History 3450: Urban History created exhibition materials as labels that asked students to practice writing succinct and compelling content built on research and for a specific audience and purpose. These transferable writing skills are highly sought after by employers in diverse fields as communication shifts to writing for the web.

As we moved to virtual learning in Spring 2020, students in the fall sections of History 3450 continued to write exhibit label content and analysis of materials that are included in this exhibit.

Students in History 2050 and History 3450 courses became part of the collaborative process of building an archival collection from inception to an online exhibition that will create new knowledge, facilitate intentional dialogue, and produce research and scholarship opportunities for future students and faculty.
