The Lost World of Sid and Marty Krofft
To better evaluate what becomes important within a city's self-definition, the Building Cities theme encourages a closer look at the failed aspects of building a city as much as the relative success stories. While investigating a city's history, questions often arise, such as why did Project A succeed where Project B seemed to fail, and how much is the city responsible to support efforts to stimulate far-reaching urban development?
As such, while using a KCAC approach in researching the history of The CNN Center--a currently important and internationally recognized Atlanta landmark--Dave Winter's students found the building to hold a legacy that contains witches, juggling thirty-foot clowns, and even a magnificent pinball machine large enough to accomodate human passengers.
To read the resulting article,complete with original illustrations and published by Winter's students for the April 26th edition of the Wheeler High School Catalyst, click on the original cover art below.
