Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
The Historical Inquiry Project (HI) was given out on Friday, November 21. This project is designed to help students strengthen and sharpen research skills while finding out more about their own family and friends.
On Friday, I showed many examples of primary sources to the students. I chose to highlight my grandfather. We looked together at pictures, newspaper articles and certificates. Based on what we looked at, we were able to learn a lot about my grandfather and his 90 years of life. We brainstormed some ideas of questions we could ask, and who we could ask since my grandfather has passed. We also looked at past examples of student projects.
As students get into the project, I am sure they will have questions. I hope you will encourage your student to come to me and ask questions as needed.
I was thrilled with the products last year. Students were able to gain a new understanding of their families and where they came from. I really believe, wholeheartedly, in this project.
Thank you for your help and support of your students as they complete this project!
