IL Historic Preservation Agency and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum
The faculty, students, and parents of Lincoln Magnet School are enthusiastic about the curricular opportunities our partnership with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Presidential Library and Museum offers. We have collaboratively planned curricular pieces to benefit our students, which can be shared and accessed by a worldwide audience.
The Hubbard Family & Lincoln Colored Home
The Hubbard Family joined LMS as a community partner in the fall of 2005 for a project called History Comes Alive. The Hubbard family has allowed our students access to the Lincoln Colored Home to take digital pictures in order to create a virtual tour, which will become part of the Lincoln Magnet School web site. In addition, students will create documentaries about the Home and related topics. These documentaries will be entered in the Illinois History Fair and shown at the Lincoln Magnet School Film Festival in the spring. The Illinois History Fair is an academic competition, which improves student learning skills and also complements our eighth grade learning standards. Students will improve research methods as they explore Illinois' rich history. We feel this partnership will allow students to analyze and synthesize information and connect the rich history of our local past with our present and their future.
The Lincoln Colored Home Foundation
• The Lincoln Colored Home Foundation will share information they have gathered, including primary sources in the form of oral histories, with our students. In addition, members of the Foundation will work with LMS students to further their research on the Home and local history. In exchange for this assistance, we will bring their foundation into public awareness through our web site and credits within the various documentaries.
