OK, here’s your chance! You have been selected by your school to meet and interview some famous Americans.
- If you met Thomas Jefferson face to face, what would you ask him? What do you think he would he tell you?
- Ask Walt Disney what gave him the idea for Mickey Mouse and Disneyland and write what you think he will say.
- You are introduced to Helen Keller. Write down how you felt communicating with Helen. How did the interview go? How did you overcome the communication barrier?
- If you were asked to interview Margaret Sanger, would you need to research what she is famous for? Write an article about Margaret and deliver it to the class.
