Fifth hour english and social studies class, Barneveld High School, Barneveld, WI / Barneveld community profile
Introduction, pp.  ff.
INTRODUCTION Many times students find normal high school courses irrelevant to their own existance. At the same time, many sources of information in a community go unnoticed and therefore untapped. Because of this, we decided to design a mini-course which would attempt to deal with this situation. The result was the Community Profile. A combination of English and Social Studies skills would be utilized in compilina information regarding the Barneveld community. The selections herein contained are the result of this study. Emotions fluctuated as this project progressed. Many students became very involved investigating and actually tracking down information, while others spent equal energ.y avoiding these unusual assignments. Initial plans were constantly revised to deal with changing time available, resource persons, and interest levels. These combined to form the basis for this project. The profile has been a challenge and a trial to all of those involved with it. We were unable to accomplish all we had hoped and attempted, yet we do not feel we have failed to achieve a small yet significant degree of success. Only a fraction of those interviewed or surveyed have made it into the pages of this finished profile, but we want to sincerely thank the many members of the community who qave so generously of their time and knowledge to assist our search for Barneveld's personality and "roots." We hope you find our efforts enjoyable as well as enlightening.
