Product Description
After completing the local soldier research project, one of my students remarked, "It's like I knew him." I was really overjoyed that she understood these soldiers were people just like you and I from the same communities we live in.

This is not a simple project, but rather one that is intended to be challenging. The local soldier research portion will be especially challenging for students, but also very rewarding when the realize these were real people who fought and died.

Below is a breakdown of how the project works:

Project Content:

- Students first choose a local soldier (tips within project).
- Students will gather a variety of primary and secondary sources on the battle the soldier fought in. These range from original pictures to artwork and poetry.
- Students will also conduct research on their local soldier from the Great War. This is the most meaningful part of the project. Students will find the soldier's enlistment papers online, research about where the soldier served and gather many other important items on the soldier. Since this is a challenging task a full page of suggestions is provided to help students get started.
- In addition, there is a project reflection portion where students evaluate deeper thinking questions.

Project Design

- Students have four differentiated options in how they design their project (eg. portfolio, poster board, scrapbook or website). Most often they choose the scrapbook.

Other items:

- A daily planner is included along with a research guide and very clear rubric.
