Teacher Introduction

What will my students do?

Your students, working within groups of 3-4, will research a date from WWII, and formulate and answer research questions centered on it.  For example, if one group selects December 7, they will have what happened on that date throughout all years of the war. When their research is done, groups will script, record, and edit an audio podcast which you will then email to the National WWII Museum for other students to access, critique, and comment on.
