Very Primary Documents

For the folks from "You Must Remember This" (slide show) this was a very elusive primary document. Here's a very simple project to do: After proper background instruction with oral histories, assign characters and record the kids reading the stories. They may want to improvise some dialogue after a while. Later that dialogue can be transcribed. Again, we are talking about multiple ways of providing literacy instruction. Carol Elkins, who does volunteer work with many of our ELL kids, uses a similar approach when she makes her incredible movies. This is the same Carol who is the grandaughter of chief NYC subway architect, William Barclay Parsons.
