A team of eight students have been examining a script from the Young American Heroes Project on Frederick Douglas. They are going to send their suggestions to the production team when finished. Today they had the opportunity to interview Professor Alibrandi from Fairfield University who is working with the production company, Palace Production Center.

"Palace Production Center, an award-winning Connecticut media company is teaming with Fairfield University Graduate School of Education, CPTV, and a team of top historians from places like Yale University and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to create a breakthrough multi-platform project to help teach history and civics to middle school students.

Called Young American Heroes (YAH), the project is one of only a handful funded last year by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in a national competition that drew 80 entries.

YAH seeks to set up a new paradigm for education...breaking down the walls...going directly to teachers to get their input...and finding students where they live 24/7 on their I-Pods and cell phones...speaking to them in peer based language. "

The film is scheduled to be aired on National Public Television next year.
