Are you teaching a course on U.S. military history? Do you want your students to get a better understanding of what it was like to be an American during a certain era?
We have an online library of hundreds of first person stories of service. Your students can listen to stories of Americans who fought in the Battle Of The Bulge, survived life in POW camp, got drafted to Vietnam or endured the cold winters of Korea. Let them hear first-hand what it was like to live through the Great Depression, to hear over the radio that Pearl Harbor had been bombed and to answer the call of duty when their nation called them to serve.
We can cater a lesson plan for your classroom that will fulfill the core curriculum requirements and afford your students the opportunity to learn in a way that text books cannot teach them.
If you have students who are interested in conducting their own interviews, we can help. Just let us know what generation or subject you are wanting to cover, we will take care of the rest.
If a student already has someone they would like to interview, such as a friend or family member, we can help them prepare and record the interview to get a good quality video for the student.
If your students are wanting to take their interviews and ideas to the next level and create their own video project, we can help with that too. In this type of project students will learn about video editing to tell a story, incorporating photos and video to their project, where to download supporting video as well as copyright rules.
All of these projects are also available to home school groups. Just coordinate with us and we will come talk to your group and we can get a personalized plan put together for your curriculum needs.
