Last week, we launched another thoughtful exhibit in the Halle Library Archive & Museum Gallery. Curated by Archives Director Barbara Broudo, with assistance from Office of Sustainability Director Sarah Creighton, Endicott Goes Green looks at how the College operates in an environmentally responsible manner and what steps we take to incorporate sustainability into our students’ academic and residential experience.
Today, up-to-date classroom hold nothing of the previous generation’s: rows of bolted down wooden lift top desks with an ink well, the Palmer Method cursive writing and personal typing classes, the excitement when you had a film and everyone filed into the auditorium for a special program or being called to the blackboard to do an arithmetic problem or conjugate a sentence. Everything has changed – whiteboards instead of blackboards, laptops instead of typewriters and smart wireless classrooms instead of screens and slide projectors. What’s next?
To celebrate the evolution of the classroom, Endicott College’s Archive and Museum is pleased to announce its next exhibit, School Days…They aren’t what they used to be!
As part of the Essex County Trails and Sails 10th Anniversary “Life and Legacy of Governor John Endicott in Essex County” program, the Endicott exhibit in the Halle Library shows why the Founders selected the name.
