Our Town—An Architectural Perspective
“Our Town: An Architectural Perspective” is a program for at risk third, fourth and fifth grade students, designed to encourage an awareness of the built environment through field trips, sketches, maps and construction of a model town. The Fitch Foundation grant funded a model program to educate the students about the built environment and the role that preservation plays in the history of a neighborhood. The program includes field trips, a video documenting the students’ neighborhood, and computer labs for mapping and design. The three principals of Partnerships in Education are mid-career educators. This grant was made possible by a generous donation from the Kress Foundation.
