For the next project, you will study a specific historical event that took place when a living member of your family was alive. You will research the event and try to get a good understanding of it, and then interview a family member that has experienced it.

First, if possible, find a member of your class that shares a similar national and/or cultural heritage. If you have more than one, you may choose one that you wish to study for this project. 

Together brainstorm a list of historical events that took place in your country or region since WWII. You may use your computer to research events and themes you find interesting.

Then, complete this google doc.

When you are done, pick one event you wish to share with the class and complete one slide of this presentation.

  • Your slide should only include pictures – One or more.
  • We will go through the slide and you will tell the class about the event and your family member who was present at the time.
  • As you listen to the presentations, think about the historical events you have discussed and whether you still find them interesting and how appropriate it would be for this particular project.
