Social Studies: Here's to You, Mrs. Roosevelt

Students discover how a song about Eleanor Roosevelt became "Mrs. Robinson" in the film, "The Graduate." From this introduction, they examine song lyrics as forms history and biography. Once they have compared an actual people's lives to the lyrics of songs about them, they report their findings in the form of television news stories.
