James Moran Middle School

James Moran Middle School is located in Wallingford, CT half-way between New York and Boston. We have 900 students in grades 6-8. The Library of Congress Archive group was made up of 25 volunteers who met after school to select websites for inclusion into the Archive. We tried to start off each day by casually surfing the web and take note of what sites we were naturally drawn towards and the ones that we returned to each day. We also took note of sites that we might not visit everyday, but that were important sources of information that we might use every so often such as church sites, and movie theatre home pages. After selecting almost 100 websites, we found patterns that were used to create our three collections: Entertainment, Shopping, and Social Networking. It was incredibly exciting to be able to contribute to the collection and have the opportunity to be involved in helping to write the history of our era. Hopefully when historians are able to reflect on our entries 1000's of years from now they will see how we had a strong need to connect, create, and of course, go shopping online!
