Hooked On Books

Sixth-grade students from Genesee Community Charter School in Rochester, NY researched and wrote a professional quality report/position paper to argue for restoring water to the dry Erie Canal waterway and building a surrounding commercial district. The report presents information that students researched and collected about other cities around the United States who have engaged in successful waterway-revitalization projects. Students presented this report to the local community including the mayor, city council, and other decision makers who were persuaded to dedicate significant funds to carrying out the vision of these middle school students.
