The form of education has widely changed before our eyes; teachers have found several techniques to include on their teaching and that is because of technology which causes traditional form of imparting knowledge to gradually develop. It won’t be surprising that someday, the use of chalkboard will be a ‘thing of the past’.
But to Emerson High School in Oklahoma City, chalkboards have taught them a valuable lesson from the past. This high school was about to renovate classrooms when they discovered something behind the chalkboard- writings and lessons written on the board way back 1917.
What a discovery! All the lessons, sketches, literature, math, music and penmanship are extraordinary like it brought the old days to new life. English teacher Cinthea Comer told The Oklahoman “It was so eerie because the colors were so vibrant it looked like it was drawn the same day. To know that it was drawn 100 years ago… it’s like you’re going into a looking glass into the past.” As expected, Oklahoma State plans on preserving it.
