This assignment is a great research project to go along with the novel A Separate Peace" by John Knowles. Students will use either Powerpoint or Keynote to make a slideshow presentation researching a selected year from the 1930's-1940's.
Included is a student handout with very specific guidelines for each slide of the presentation. A teacher's rubric is included to make grading the presentations even easier. Has a checklist of all the requirements.
This project could be assigned as an introduction to the novel, during, or after the novel. Also works for To Kill a Mockingbird.
