Johanna Elms, an AP U.S. History teacher at Downey High School, recently led her students in an activity in creating "Project USA," a scrapbook she will take with her to Russia, where she will be a guest teacher for three weeks. She had her students create a scrapbook for the Russian students. The project included pages about Modesto, American culture, American holidays and individual pages for the students to tell about themselves.
