Danbury teachers go to Hawaii to study volcanoes, Pearl Harbor and bring lessons back to students

Two Rogers Park Middle School teachers traveled this summer to Hawaii to be able to add more depth to classroom discussions.  The 8th grade teachers viewed an active volcano in Hawaii and toured the solemn site where the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. 


Science teacher Patricia Tracey's $10,000 grant was a joint grant with husband, a Danbury High School physics and chemistry teacher.  They were joined by 13 other teachers from the U-S and Australia.  The travel grant was from The Fund for Teachers.  They worked with a geologist to study volcano activity. 


English teacher Dana Ketterl, whose students are studying “Unbroken,” a World War II hero and prisoner of war, and “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which deals with ignorance and racism, said that she was able to find reprints of local newspapers in Hawaii the day after Pearl Harbor.
