Description

I am in History 301 which covers the Gilded Age of Farmington (ab 1875-1900). My topic for my research project is education in Farmington during this time period and I am focusing on Miss Porter's School. This mind map will definitely be helpful in organizing my information.

                      Annotations:

                      • The curriculum implemented at Miss Porter's School was challenging and in-depth. Her students got much more out of their time at school than did the children of Farmington public schools at the time.
                      • Miss Porter offered courses like: geography, history, arithmetic, Latin, music, geometry, Greek, etc.
