This is a research project I like to do with my students in history class. Students are assigned a decade and must then fill in the assigned project. The handout above includes about 25 in depth questions about the decade and has text boxes so that students can write their answers directly on the handout. The project is fairly interactive: it asks students to write answers, but also gets them to paste pictures, find youtube clips, fill out charts, draw pictures, etc.
Questions are on a range of themes - global politics and international relations, family and women, popular culture and fashion, work and industry, religion, etc.
The goal is to have students become experts on a particular decade and then be able to share their knowledge with the class. As different students present their findings, the class gains a greater understanding of how society has transformed over time.
