Students today participated in the pep rally fight group activity. Students had to work in groups to answer questions about what sources are reliable, and what factors would lead to different interpretations of the same event.
The reason for doing this in a world history class is because in modern times, people disagree about a great many things. History is also this way, and many events are interpreted different ways by different people. While this may lead to disagreement, discussing and working in groups on activites like this helps students become better citizens that can participate in our communities.
