Grade 10: Where are you from?
Conduct some research about your community. You need at least two sources of information (see ideas below). Try to find what is special or unique about where you live. Look for the unexpected! The more specific your focus, the better. For instance, if you live in Ashburnham, you could explore the local lore about the alien abduction of Andreasson. Have fun with this. Use your sources to write your findings as a brief research paper or narrative.  
Visuals: Like photographs, artifacts from the historical society, library, or a neighbor’s home...etc. 
Interview: Ask a family member or neighbor questions and record the answers to deepen your understanding of your community and/or local lore. 
Text:  Article, book chapter, infographic, website, journal, diary, letter...etc.
Observation: Take notes while watching a specific space in your community.
