Images from Day 4

A quick post composed mostly of pictures tonight because I still need to write up my activity plan to share at our gallery walk tomorrow.

We spent some time writing as a way to demonstrate the knowledge we’d gained from the NYC draft riot primary sources we’d analyzed in the Thinking Like a Historian exercises. I chose to present my writing as a series of tweets from a reporter.

In the afternoon, I visited the African American Civil War museum. It was a very small museum and not a lot of new information to me, but it was interesting to look at photos of southern legislatures during Reconstruction.

Had dinner at Busboys & Poets with a former colleague and got a chance to browse the bookstore. What an awesome selection!

donuts

It was a beautiful night, so we walked down to Dupont and made a stop at Krispy Kreme. Sadly none for me, since flour makes my stomach hurt, but it was fun to watch Tim to decide what flavors to get.
