Product Description
This is a project that puts history into action by having students interview older people in their community about the events that are covered in a 20th Century U.S. History class. Rather than just learn about the topics, why not have students ask their grandparents about the Vietnam War protests, or the moonlanding, or the JFK assassination? I have done this in my class for three years, and have gotten overwhelmingly positive feedback from students and interviewees alike. Students have loved hearing the interesting and funny stories from the people they interview, and the elder people in our community have always been touched that someone wanted to hear about their life. For some, it was the first time anyone had ever asked them about their experiences. This project includes the project outline for how to conduct the interview, write the report, and prepare the class presentation. The grading rubric is also included.
