Living History: The Berlin Wall

Here is a creative history lesson.  A Florida high school erected a paper replica of the Berlin Wall (complete with graffiti on the west side) through the middle of campus.  While students on one side of the wall were allowed to socialize and carry on with their normal day, students on the other side of the wall faced a stricter dress code, only orderly behavior, and even propaganda films.

The lesson commemorated the 20th anniversary of the dismantling of the Berlin Wall.

(So what happens if teachers want to keep the wall?)
