Frequently Asked Questions for Teachers and Research Team Leaders
What is this Project all about again?
What is the geographic scope of the Brattleboro Word Project?
What makes a good site to focus on?
Or Thoreau’s descriptions of Mt. Wantastiquet. Or ‘Abijah Prince Road’ where Lucy Terry Prince, the author of the first extant poem by an African American, lived in the mid 1700s. Existing historic markers can also be used, like the stone commemorating a fallen veteran outside the Brattleboro Coop. Or, even particularly compelling writing on a gravestone. But other sites might be less obvious, or there may be a concern about including a private residence on a tour that might bring unwanted visitors. In this case, there may be a public site that could be connected with the writing, or the writer.
