Honoring Texas Military Members


Brandeis High School, Northside ISD, San Antonio, TX

Fall 2015/Winter 2016

Students from the Advanced Placement United States History classes at Brandeis High School of
Northside Independent School District explored the concept of honor and the roles of individuals
in military service.
 
Working in teams and under the guidance of teachers Cynthia Lemanski and Matthew Lopez, the
students commemorated a veteran of their choice through the use of documents, images, artifacts,
and oral histories. The tributes are captured in the individual shadow boxes created by fellow
students in Daniel Perez’s Construction II class. Video oral history interviews conducted by the
students are also on view.
 
Through the creation of these tributes, the students of Brandeis High School gained a deeper
understanding of History through source materials, and of the role of the military and of
individuals in protecting and shaping a country, concepts that support the curriculum This
experience also affords them a deeper connection to the community and to their citizenship.
