Live the History - Berat
Project Launch: 3-31-16
This project aims to enhance educational opportunities for students in Puka by organizing a class field trip to the city of Berat to visit historical castles and museums to learn more about Albania’s culture and history. After the field trip, students will present about what they learned, providing an opportunity to reflect on the experience and share with their peers.
Final Update: 5/20/16
The field trip was a huge success! Over the course of a day, students were able to explore a historical part of the country that many had never been to, or even heard of before. Following the visit, students created posters to reflect on their experience and shed light on the historical significance of Berat. As a result of all the positive feedback, the school aims to include additional field trips and excursions into the curriculum.
