Clip to ScrapBook #3

I am not quite sure if I am answering this correctly or not... I have tried to get away from the traditional paper/pencil test and have the students take the knowledge learned and share in some sort of project. For a WWI unit with my eighth graders they had to create a scrap book about a soldier. they included postcards sent to him from family members, and postcards letters and photos he sent back to them. One girl included the Western Union Telegram informing the family of the soldier's death. it was incredibly moving.
We have done "Decade in a Box" and written song titles that would be appropriate to go on a CD about a specific topic.
iBefore I type more, s this what you are looking for?
