The fifth-grade students of Duffield Elementary School recently completed an in-depth research and writing project covering the chosen topics of civil rights, girls in education or women’s suffrage.

Students researched such events/individuals as the Greensboro Sit-In, Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Malala Yousafzai, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Seneca Falls Convention. Working in a cooperative group, the students then utilized their research to create a poster to complement their  project and presented their findings to their classmates.
