This project takes both major and minor personalities from the American Civil War and forces students to research their points of view and experiences and then report them from the first person in what becomes a full length multipage newspaper designed with print journalist software.
I had hoped to take these newspapers and sell them at Civil War re-enactments. Alas, I never had the time to perform this project due to the exigencies of Advanced Placement curriculum. One day, perhaps, if I enjoyed more freedom to cover less “breadth” and go into more “depth” I will do this. I look forward to it!
