Thirty-two students from Clearwater High will participate in the Clearwater High Civil Rights Tour, a project-based personalized learning opportunity. Students have researched and will participate in experiences that will connect them to the Civil Rights movement in the United States.
The culmination of this project is an in-depth tour of sites with historical significance for the civil rights movement. Students will visit Atlanta, Ga.; Birmingham, Ala. and Memphis, Tenn. The trip will take place March 11-14, 2017. During the trip, Clearwater High students will meet people who were key stakeholders, active participants and spectators of these important events. No professional tour guides will be utilized.
All learning will be student-driven. On their return from the tour, the student participants, also known as CHS Freedom Ambassadors, will lead a project-based learning experience for the entire student body. Clearwater High School is part of the first group of schools in the district to implement Personalized Learning through our Pinellas Innovates plan.
