The power of inquiry

March 12, 2018

Three South Kansas students completing a history inquiry around unsung heroes discovered Irena Sandler who  during WW2 rescued 2,500 children from the Warsaw Ghetto.  Nobody knew until these students told her story and it moved across the world.   The power of inquiry and global connections.


Without this Kansas history teaching  intentionally bringing diversity into the classroom of these rural Kansas students the story of  Irena Sandler and how she rescued these children and kept a record of their family background in buried jars under a tree, would be unknown.
