Special thanks to Ms. Nachbar’s Duluth East High School 3rd period and 6th period World History classes for hosting my talks. It is a pleasure to reach across institutional lines, and share the process of learning and teaching about our complex world, past and present, there and here, together. North Star Reports writers, volunteers, editors, and social media editors, you are doing excellent work. I met many of your new readers today, and I hope they will become NSR writers/contributors very soon. Thanks to all of you. Professor Liang.

The North Star Project Middle Ground Journal Innovative Student Internship Summer Reports Tianjin, China

The North Star Project Middle Ground Journal Innovative Student Internship Summer Reports Tianjin, China

The North Star Project: Collaboration between The Middle Ground Journal Student Interns, The College of St. Scholastica, and North Star Academy 8th Grade Global Studies Classes, 2013-2014 School Year Summer Reports.

Under the leadership of our North Star host teachers and student interns, The North Star Project has flourished for two years. For a brief summary, please see a recent article in the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:

http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2013/1305/Opening-The-Middle-Ground-Journal.cfm

This summer we will re-tool and re-design the collaborative program, drawing on the experience of our veteran student interns, ideas from our host teachers, and new projects provided by our incoming student interns. This summer The Middle Ground Journal will share brief dispatches from our North Star Project student interns, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. As of the time of this report we have confirmed student interns who will be reporting from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing presentations on theatrical representations of historical trauma, historical memory, the price individuals pay during tragic global conflicts, and different perceptions of current events from around the world. We will post their brief dispatches here throughout the summer, and report on their interactions with the North Star students and teachers throughout the school year.
