Is that Abraham Lincoln? Could that be George Washington??
In preparation for the California Standards Tests (CSTs), these and other historical figures might be seen roaming the halls and classrooms at Valley High School quizzing students as a part of their annual History Museum on Thursday, April 25. Since 2004, students at Valley have had the chance to see history come to life and get ready to tackle their CSTs at the annual History Museum.
“The History Museum was created to bring excitement and energy to students to inspire them to do their best on the social studies CST,” said Chris Hardwicke, a history teacher at Valley. “It’s something the students look forward to each year as many of them have told us the History Museum motivates them to try harder on their tests.”
