As voted for by the community, I have created a lesson plan on Irishtown Bend, the area located on the west bank of the Cuyahoga River that is named after the Irish immigrants who lived in the area in the 19th century. This lesson plan is timely because of ongoing discussions about the future of this area. In addition, this lesson plan also places a focus on archaeology in addition to the area’s history. It is designed for high school and early college students, and is another addition to the¬†Road to Recovery¬†series. The lesson plan is located below.
