This is a fun, interactive group assignment that encourages students to research an event at the end of WW2 (can be customized to your class's needs) and write/perform a radio broadcast about it.
I use this to introduce the end of the war to the students. Its a great way to have the students teach each other and reduce teacher talking time. Can be followed up with a mini-lesson on the end of the war. Could also be extended and used as a more in depth project. Students could record their radio broadcasts or even modernize it and make it a "podcast"
