Mrs. Pajak's and Mrs. Yingling's Language Arts Classes
The students in both Mrs. Pajak's and Mrs. Yingling's classes took a field trip to the Berlin Heights Historical Museum to listen to a presentation by the curator of the museum, Mrs. Hunter, of the fascinating lives of people from the Berlin Heights/Milan area who made a significant impact on their communities, our country, and the world. Students were asked to use resources in the museum to research their person of interest to later produce a biographical sketch essay of a chosen person's life and legacy.
