Passion Project Post #1: Topic choice and proposal

In English we started our Passion Projects. A Passion Project is where you get to study and research almost anything you want. I chose to research the history of Scarsdale.

When choosing my topic I wasn’t really sure how to go about it. I asked my family for ideas, but none of them really interested me. When I was finishing up my e-learning for the day, my dad suggested I do the history of Scarsdale or ancient Korea. They both interested me, and I pictured how good the final product would look for both of them. In the end I decided the history of Scarsdale was more appealing.

My main inquiry question that will guide my research is, how have past events in Scarsdale’s history affected Scarsdale today? I have decided not to do sub-questions, but instead have subtopics. My subtopics are Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Edgewood, Heathcote, and Quaker Ridge.

I am very excited to work on my Passion Project!
