Where Were You?

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Learners 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, learners write a reflective essay considering the notion of personal experience versus "objective truth" in history.
