What is the true cost of war? Students at Tech Valley High School conducted research to examine the costs and benefits of modern wars to answer this question. They then shared their findings in a podcast, featured on our website. The project is based on the Costs of War project at Brown University. The class is co-taught by ELA teacher Cat Eisele and U.S. history teacher Tom Morrill. Ms. Eisele says, “In two years or less, they are going to be voters. Having that knowledge of how to get that information and accurately analyze it and then use that to inform themselves to be better voters and citizens is really important.”
