Where Were You?

Students examine various New York Times readers' reflections on the life and death of President John F. Kennedy, by reading and discussing "Readers Reflect on President John F. Kennedy." Students then write their own personal recollection of a major news event and interview other people on the same event, to compare and contrast experiences. Finally, students write a reflective essay considering the notion of personal experience versus "objective truth" in history.
