Since 2009, Illinois students are required to watch a 11 minute video sharing the history of the Congressional Medal of Honor, and the sacrifices these heroes made on behalf of our country. First hand accounts of these heroes are in this film.I have included the link to this site, from the Illinois State Board of Education. To help my students learn more about their stories, I designed a webquest that utilizes three different websites. In addition I differentiated for ESL and lower students. My students enjoyed reading about the various military conflicts and the courage the soldiers showed.
