Arkansas' Top Ten Events of the Century....Says Who? Why? Deciding What is Important in History
Middle and high schoolers work in small groups to compare four different lists published in the Arkansas Times newspaper which chose the "top ten" Arkansas news events of the 20th century. Learners look for similarities and differences between the lists. Each group comes up with their own "top ten" list based on the ones they are presented with. This lesson is packed with great worksheets, photographs, and copies of the lists from the newspaper itself.
