Want to make learning fun for students and cover history standards at the same time? If so, this project is for you. Put your students in charge of writing, editing and filming a political satire based around 1950, 1960 & 1970s events. Vietnam, The Cold War, Watergate & Nixon are covered plus additional topics. I use this project to when I teach the 1970‘s and students love it! I do allow students that do not consider themselves comedians to create a biased newscast (FOX or MSNBC). Engage your students in this fun and creative standards based project. Nine history standards are covered in this project alone! This project takes students to the top of blooms and enhances 21st century skills of critical and creative thinking. Includes a pre and/or post test questions and self reflection to show mastery of skills. Includes links to help students understand satire or view SNL political humor. Like all projects from this seller, projects are standards based and provides multiple scoring rubrics/checklists to help teacher administer the project.
Topics Include: Vietnam, Cold War, 1970's
