Veterns Documentary Project

I have recently been working with several teachers at my home school on documentary projects from past wars and how their lives have changed. We have yet to see any of the finished projects but so far the students have really stepped up to the plate when working on these assignments. They video taped their interviews, some did audio recordings, some digitized photos and then combined all of these sources along with their thesis statements of how the person they interviewed story's work in to the bigger picture of the war that they were involved in. The students spent many hours after school putting all of the pieces together to potential create some wonderful documentaries to share with their classmates and with the person they interviewed as well.

I will post more on my observations and potential interviews with the teachers I was working with this past spring.
