We are in the midst of kicking off History Fair this year. Our theme is a good one – Leadership & Legacy!
During class right now, students are fining a topic. That is, evaluating potential ideas to “filter” out the bad ones. We want students to end up with a topic that is historic, meaningful, and has had a significant social, cultural, political, or economic impact on Chicago/Illinois (or beyond!). We’re using this sheet (from the CMHEC) to evaluate and filter these topics.
These links will also be helpful for browsing topics:
