Today on the History Show!

Radio Show Interview with John Adams

We have been digging right into our new chapter this month in 8th grade Social Studies! We are currently in our chapter about the first two presidents. This week we have been discussing John Adams and the scandals of his presidency: the XYZ affair and the Alien and Sedition Acts. We are starting a new project this week. Students have been put into groups of 4 or 5. They will be recording either a video or an audio file to do a talk show about these events. They have roles such as scriptwriter, show host, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and James Madison. These will be due next week but they worked diligently today. I am very excited to see what they come up with! This is a very creative group.
