Using transcripts of interviews of African-Americans who served in WWII, class members work in pairs to understand their experience. Prior to the group work, the teacher provides background on WWII and the African-American experience. After the groups finish reading and discussing the transcript, they brainstorm interview questions they would have liked to have answered, and predict what the answers would have been. Using primary source documents is an excellent supplement to the textbook.
