Little Rock Central High’s Civil Rights Memory Project was inspired by the American Memory Project at the Library of Congress. The Memory Project immerses students in the oral history of civil rights and human rights through hands-on, inter-generational learning and it requires students to analyze causes and effects of historical events and also the resulting impact on both individuals in their families and institutions in our communities.
The World War I Student Digital History Project is part of the statewide education outreach efforts of the Arkansas WWI Centennial Commemoration Committee. Sponsored by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, the goal of the project is to encourage Arkansas teachers and students to work with community partners to find and digitize WWI-era documents in local archives and family collections in their own community. Students learn to think like historians and earn author credits by sharing their digital history projects on the Arkansas History Hub for use as teaching resources for classrooms around the state.
