  • Quite the find... wonder if folks will request they be destroyed

    https://blog.theliteracysite.greater...m_term=4194317

    this is quite a find... we have encountered some interesting artifacts when renovating our schools but nothing even close.

    Wonder who will find them offensive and think they should be destroyed.

    Very interesting. My wife as a teacher took our kids to a living museum where they dressed in period costume and re-enacted the old 1 room classrooms, cooked on wood stoves, butchered chickens, boys did blacksmithing. No A/C in the summer. The neat part of these old blackboards is even tying the education into how they lived. On Thanksgiving they went hunting and shot a turkey vs thawing a Butterball 2 days before.

      Who are you suggesting would find them offensive? I cannot imagine anyone not wanting to preserve these relics of the past.

        Those chalkboard images are from a high school? The "lessons" look like elementary school, the basic math and pilgrim history looks like something I was taught in 2nd or 3rd grade.

        Perhaps it was an elementary school that was later converted to a high school. Otherwise, students in 1917 were backward compared to the Baby Boomer era.
