 Ballston APUSH  Final Project   -  The Interview  


Your task for this option  is to interview a member of your family, a neighbor, or teacher who can provide a first person account of their experiences as they relate to a significant event or events in U.S. History. The following is a list of sample questions and historic events. Feel free to create your own questions, and to discover your own important dates. You might want to give an advance copy of these questions to your interviewee. Have her/him choose questions s/he would like to answer.  Ideally you and your interviewee would collaborate to select the most appropriate questions. Be certain to get the most basic information (e.g., full name, date of birth, etc.).
