02.04.2014 – New Britain, Ct – DiLoreto Magnet Elementary School sixth-grader Miguel Rodriguez, dons a whit coat for his portrayal as Albert Einstein in the Live Wax Museum organized by teacher Kit Moya. For the past two weeks Moya’s 24 students have been studying historical figures and events of their choosing, from pilgrims to the attacks of September 11, then creating dioramas with themselves as models. “One of the goals we have for students is for them to become independent learners. Moya said. Adding, “In anything your study you need to know about history because everything is correlated.” Photograph by Mark Mirko | firstname.lastname@example.org.
