Creating Your Own Project
Blogging has become an interesting way for people to express their opinions and share information across the Internet. For this project, learners will create a blog using free Internet tools. They will assume the persona of a lady-in-waiting in Marie Antoinette’s court, who is reporting on events occurring during the Storming of the Bastille. This project is easily adapted to other subject areas and/or skill levels.
