copies of original documents, written accounts, and their own oral histories
(stories), there is a wealth of information from which to start. Acknowledging
that much of this information might not be accurate, the purpose of the
individual project is not a factual history but an appreciation for the
process of creating a history. Should any student not have access to his/her
own family's documents, encouragement to develop a plausible, fictionalized
migration history is appropriate. And lastly, the project should be fun.
: Independent study is another option for the individual project.
