World War 2 Project Proposal
By: Ashlyn Keltner
- What was it like in the War?
- What happened over in the U.S and other countries?
- What did it do to people psychologically and emotionally?
I want to learn more about World War 2. For this two week project I want to learn about the events that lead up to the war. I want to know what the War was like for the people that were in it. I want learn about the events after the war, such as how people regrouped to put things back in order. I want to know what it was like for U.S and the other countries that were effected. I also want to know how it effected people psychologically and emotionally. So I'll be interviewing three people that experienced the War. I'll also being doing a lot of research, either online or by reading books. The reason why I want to learn about the World War 2 is because I like learning about conflicts that have made it into history. More importantly I like knowing why they happened and how.
District Vision Points
Communication and collaborating will be the two big ones in my project. To get a deeper insight of World War 2, I'll be interviewing three people from my work that have been in World War 2 or lived through it. For my project to be great, I will be collaborating with my supervisor on what more I could do to further it. I also might create a trifold board with all the facts of World War 2 on it.
The reason why I chose my project to be about World War 2 is because I like learning about Wars. I like learning why they happened and how they started. I also like learning how it effected people inside and outside of the War. Either psychologically or emotionally and everything in between. In a way Wars fascinate me.
How Will This Project Challenge You As A Learner And A Thinker?
I think this project will challenge be as a learner and a thinker because I will be doing a lot of research. I will probably have to read a lot of books about World War 2 and I will have to be interviewing people. This project is going to make me go out of my comfort zone.
I will be communicate my learning by creating a trifold board of all the information I gather and the interviews. I thought instead of doing something online, I could do something that is more hands on.
Things that are probably going to be provided by the school are the books that I need to read to gather my information. Plus the school has on-site teachers that could very well help me. I will provide the trifold board and any paper that I need. The costs aren't going to be that much, at the most maybe $10. I will use all the resources that I have to create my project and make the project as best as I can.
