    Contractors renovating classrooms at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City found chalk lessons from 1917 behind the walls.
    Perfectly preserved lesson plans scrawled on blackboards from nearly a century ago were found behind the walls of an Oklahoma high school.

    The chalkboards, believed to date to 1917, were discovered in three Emerson High School classrooms in Oklahoma City last week by contractors during school renovations, shocked educators said.

    "I got goosebumps, and then I got tears in my eyes, and then I sat in here and just stared because it's really like, it was like walking into a time capsule," Principal Sherry Kishore told WAFB 9 News.


    Colorful drawings and cursive writings show how lessons in math, music and the history behind Thanksgiving were taught about 100 years ago.

    "When you walk into these rooms, it's like they just left the lesson, and they're expecting to come back the next day and start again," Kishore said. "It was very emotional for me."

    School officials will decide how to further preserve the blackboards.

    Doesn't look like any lessons to me - a calendar and a picture of a turkey. Big deal

    Saw this story yesterday on our local news. Very cool!

    Although, I supposed the fact that I'm a teacher makes it cool to only me. :oops:

    No New Years Eve? I guess Oklahoma only has 30 days in December. And you thought today's education sucks. Some things never change.

    :snicker: With blonde hair? The chalkboard is black. That's the kind of thinking that led some to believe these people were "black".
