 Students, in groups of three, will research the different groups that were involved in the Vietnam war (Vietcong, American soldiers, American press, War Hawks, Anti-War Doves). They will find primary sources and create a summary that reflects their specific group’s perspective on the war. Each group will be required to conduct an “interview” that represents how their specific group was affected by war. Project requires students to already know some type of primary source breakdown strategy. I use SOAP (Speaker, Occasion, Audience, Purpose) in order to break down these primary sources.
