A week-long summer institute for teachers and community members coordinated by Master Teacher Katherine Morgan led to the creation of community heritage learning projects focused on field experiences at The Frost Place in Franconia and the Moore Dam and village of Pattenville located just west of Littleton. Participants’ lesson plans, which were intended to be templates for activities that could be re-focused on places in their own communities, are available under Curriculum Units. Learn More
