Life on a North Carolina Military Base in Wartime

Investigators use a “Says/Means” chart to analyze and draw inferences from quotes taken directly from newspaper articles detailing life on an active military base in Greensboro, North Carolina during World War II. Individuals then use a writing organizer to craft a narrative about a personal experience that parallels an event in the articles. Links to the Basic Training Camp No. 10 newspaper are included, as are templates for the worksheets. Although part of a series of lessons about the history of North Carolina, the approaches detailed by the resource could be used independently.
