POP in POP Night stands for Person of the Past. The students research someone from the past, write a speech on that person, and become that person for a night. Sometimes the students can become anyone they want to become before a certain year and sometimes I picked a theme such as presidents and first ladies. The project and the actual night is supposed to have a wax museum feel to it. Included in this packet is a description of the project, how they will be graded, a sheet to hold them accountable for their research, and speech organization worksheet to help them write their speech.
