World War I Lesson

World War I thumbnail94701

Riverhead Middle School eighth-graders’ knowledge of historical events related to World War I was significantly expanded through an interactive review session created by social studies teacher Kevin Hewkin and school librarian Alyson Grossman. As part of the lesson, students worked together to solve a series of problems in order to “free U.S. soldiers to save Europe.” “The activity was a huge success with the students,” said Hewkin. “It also prepared them for an assessment that followed.”
