Living History at Lone Oak Middle

Chapter President Geoff Baggett spent the day on Tuesday with the 8th graders of the Lone Oak Middle School in Paducah.  He presented his Revolutionary War in a Trunk program six times to ten total classes, reaching almost 250 students with instruction on the Revolutionary War in a single day.

Baggett’s presentations, sponsored by the Kentucky Humanities Council, were the culmination of the 8th grade Social Studies unit on the Revolutionary War.  In addition, the reading department at Lone Oak Middle purchased 120 copies (three class sets) of his youth book, Little Hornet, and incorporated the book and its companion study guide into their reading curriculum this fall.  All 250 students are currently reading and studying the Revolutionary War novel in their Reading classes.  The students seemed to enjoy meeting the actual author of their current study book.
