Describe the audience for the final project that you have in mind and why you chose that audience.
My final project will be aimed at high school students, predominantly studying American history in their junior year. I will specifically design the unit to suit my AP English Language and Composition students who are reading nonfiction novels, articles, essays throughout the year with a small sprinkling of poetry and fictional pieces. These readings designed to raise questions regarding political, ethical, cultural, and social issues, thus we will look at how a virtually unknown local flight school that operated during WWII in their town affected local history and their assumptions and views on pilots, patriotism, and more. I believe that this lesson in local history will enable students to look beyond the textbook and realize that history is constant and living.
