    World War I Projects

    Students in Mr. Proulx's Modern World History course displayed their research for World War I in the course's annual "Connect War" project. Students were given three weeks to research and create projects ranging from models and dioramas to battlefield medical guides and propaganda posters. Each scholar put forth a great effort and made the project-based assessment memorable.  See photo gallery
