Project Due Date: November 11
Purpose: clearly answer the following set of questions:
- How does this person, event, group reflect the 1930s and the 1940s?
- What affects does this person, event, group have after the time period?
- How did this person, event, group actually create “history” instead of simply being there?
Part One: Research Options:
