DNN: Decade Network News

Students review website evaluation skills, note taking strategies, online sources, databases, and print sources to use for a class project. They create a class newscast on decades from 1940 through 1990. Student groups, representing each decade, do a newscast segment on either economics, culture, politics, historical significance, or technology as a specific aspect of their decade.
