Space and Race at Eau Claire: Past, Present, and Future

High school students look at the historical, economic, technological and political issues that shaped the community to which they belong in this lesson.  The goal is for students to use maps and photographs of their community, in this case of Eau Claire and suburb of Columbia, SC, to piece together the changing history of the area.  By uncovering stories of their own community’s past, students find a place for themselves in shaping its future.
