PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WWII photographs are so compelling that, with a bit of structure and guidance, even the most disinterested students can be roused to curiosity and enjoy the feeling that comes with playing the role of a historical detective.

This simple, powerful project allows each student to select something that interests them, research it and then present their findings in a large photo gallery to their classmates, the school, other teachers or parents, or the community as a whole.

Great for practicing visual thinking strategies required in common core standards.

Grading is simple and you get a lot of “bang for the buck” with this assignment. There is a lot of structure but so much room for creativity and student ownership of their work!

With this purchase you get:
• A set of teacher instructions and tips
• 100 WWII era photographs with a key word or hint for students to use as they begin researching their selected photograph
• A time saving description of each picture to aid teachers in prompting students with their research and for grading purposes. Interesting factoids are included with many of these.
• Two completed photo gallery examples: one of a photo from an Imagine Dragons concert and another from 9/11
• A page of student instructions
• A grading rubric
• Eighteen questions that students can answer while they research their photographs. These help when they write their own commentary about their selected photograph

You might ask your principal or bookkeeper about setting up a Teachers Pay Teacher account for your school.

Best wishes,

The Past is a Blast
