    In the fall semester, students will study WWI. Using primary resources from the National Archives, each student will receive the records of a soldier that they will follow through the war. Students will study the battles that their soldier fought in, read books & create a timeline and other projects all centered around the War and their soldier’s individual role in it. The class will be supplemented with music, art, photographs from the time period as well as occasionally watching video clips to bring certain battles & events to life. The Spring Semester will mimic the fall semester. Students will receive the records of a WWII soldier that they will follow throughout the war, reading books, creating timelines & projects all centered around the war and their particular soldier’s experience in it. Luckily, there are still some living WWII vets remaining! I hope to bring several special speakers into the class who can share their wartime experiences as an American soldier, a child living in Germany and a Holocaust survivor. We will end the year with a special celebration honoring World War I and World War II soldiers.
