Coal Miners and Mining Towns: Their Stories

An ethnographer studies people and retells their story through an Anthropological lens. Learners can consider the impact of coal miners, coal mining, and the mining industry on regional and national history. They interview a real coal miner, compose their personal story, then compile those stories creating a classroom living history book. This idea could be modified to fit the regional industry in your area.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
