A Narrative History of the Montana Heritage Project
Community Membersí Experiences in Global Events
Paula NisleyBroadus High School
Students worked to better understand World War II and its affects on the Jewish community by reading and discussing Elie Wieselís book Night and by viewing and discussing the movie Schindlerís List. Students then conducted oral and written research projects on specific aspects of World War II. With their literary and research backgrounds, students wrote interview questions and interviewed area World War II veterans. The completed biographies are housed at the Powder River Historical Society Museum. Students also read A Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder and designed and conducted interviews with local residents to record the worst winters they could remember.To print a final report for the year-end binder, click here.
