COLLEGE PROTESTS & KENT STATE MASSACRE

 

The student protests against both the Vietnam War and the draft are an important part of learning about the impact of the Vietnam War.  For this assignment you will be working with a partner.  You will prepare an interview in which one is a reporter and the other is a college protester.  This will be recorded for a podcast.  You may then use Audacity to add sound effects.

 

As part of the protest at your college, the protesters will burn the ROTC building.    Also, the protest at your college happened after the Kent State Massacre.  You must include references to Kent State in your editorial.
