May 11, 2018

Wisdom Lane Students Embrace History at LI Contest - image001Four students from Wisdom Lane Middle School's National History Day Club recently participated in Long Island History Day at Hofstra University, an academic contest for students in grades 6-12 to present their research on a historical topic. Wisdom Lane seventh-graders Adriana Barkey, Nabiha Khan, AvisaTonekaboni and eighth-grader Jack Thearle were interviewed about their projects during the event which corresponded with the 2018 contest theme "Conflict and Compromise in History."

With the guidance of teacher Alexander Eichhorn,Barkeyand Khan created a documentary titled "My Constitutional Right: The Story of Claudette Colvin," which focused on civil rights activist Claudette Colvin who refused to give up her seat on a bus nine months before Rosa Parks.Tonekaboni wrote a research paper titled "You Have the Right to Remain Silent: The Journey of Ernesto Miranda" about the Miranda v. Arizona Supreme Court decision, while Thearle wrote a research paper titled "A Glimpse of Hope for Peace" about the Christmas Day Truce of 1914 during World War I between British, French, and German soldiers.

Although the students did not advance to the next level of competition, the district is extremely proud of all the participants for their hard work. The students will continue to share their research as they plan on submitting their projects to the New York State Archives Student Research Award Contest.
