|The Family/History Project will be due in place of Journal #4 and
worth 20 points. It will give students experience with research techniques
and resources in the library, as well as, the opportunity to explore more
about various U.S. ethnic groups and history. Students may
choose one or more of their ethnic background to study and use any family
member (or an elder of choice) to interview for a historical narrative. Be ready to share briefly in
class any interesting aspects that you liked about your project.
Also, for this project, web site information will not be accepted --info must be solicited from an article, book or journal.
