“Meet the Press” SOMS-Style
Ms. Pew’s 6th grade social studies students put their knowledge of the Industrial Age to the test in a Meet the Press style question and answer session. Teams of 3-4 students were provided with a historical figure that they had to research and prepare questions for. Each student in the team chose a role to play: the historical figure, the talent agent, an investigative interviewer or a friendly interviewer. Students were challenged with knowing their figure inside and out as they answered questions pertaining to the figure’s life.
