Youth Engagement Campaign Created
Join us on a road trip down Route 66, filmed by three 20-something guys trying to find out what’s fun for young people on Route 66.
You can follow their adventure on the new Road Ahead YouTube Channel, through Twitter messages, Facebook posts, and Instagram images. Highlights include playing at a video arcade museum in Illinois, climbing an amazing clocktower in Missouri, and more.
Route 66 enthusiasts of all ages are invited to join the fun by checking out:
Road Ahead Education and Research Working Group
The Road Ahead Partnership’s Education & Research Working Group is dedicated to assisting educators and researchers in finding and collecting accurate research about Route 66 to educate students about the Mother Road. It is particularly interested in developing curricula that teachers at different grade levels can use to teach classes about the rich history surrounding Route 66.
The Working Group is interested in identifying teachers at the elementary and secondary level who are teaching kids about Route 66. It is also looking for existing curriculum or other teaching materials on Route 66, with the goal of creating a national clearinghouse for such materials, so people will have a good place to start if they want to learn about Route 66.
If you have questions about this initiative or have curricular materials or syllabi on Route 66 please forward them on to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
