  • Oral History Project

    Cool Learning Experience (CLE) has embarked on a long-term community history project, 'Talking the Wauk', which involves collecting oral histories and digitizing memorabilia related to Waukegan and its lakefront. Our 8th and 9th graders learn, develop, and apply skills essential for 21st century learners and leaders including: creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. Students discover the rich history of the Waukegan lakefront, including community driven clean-up efforts that continue today. Engaging talks with local professionals, government officials, business owners, and everyday citizens help students to shape a more inclusive narrative about their home city.
