Now educated on the significance of World War II, Mrs. Jennifer Brant’s World History students were given the opportunity to choose their own assignment and explore their chosen topic related to the events of WWII.

“I think this assignment is a new way to approach the lesson, and it gives us a lot of freedom,” sophomore Phuong Chau said.

This assignment featured 43 different topics ranging from the invention of the Atomic Bomb to Joseph Stalin’s “Great Purge”.

“I like how there were a lot of topics to choose from, but it stinks that Mrs. Brant didn’t allow overlapping of topics,” sophomore Simon Guan said.

All students were given five options to present their topic of choice, which were: to create their own Aurasma, Thinglink/Google Docs presentation, MLA style essay, First hand account interview, or a hand drawn propaganda poster.

“I love the fact that we can choose our own assignment because that way we can do something we like,” sophomore Karel Saquing said.
