The Devil in the White City: An Historical Analysis
My students need a copy of the novel, The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, for their History of Chicago course.
This project expired on July 8, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are some great kids! I work in a very diverse school who has learners who strive to obtain more information and use critical thinking skills. Since we are a small school, students get more hands on training and it really shows in their development as young adults. Students at Whiting are a mixture of mostly Latino students. We are nestled right up in the "Region" in Indiana and can see the Chicago skyline from our football field.
My project would be a project on a new course I would be teaching next year, a history of Chicago class!
These books will make a difference in the lives of my students by being able to read about both the World Fairs of Chicago and the man who wrecked havoc on the city, H. H. Holmes. The objective of the project that will be associated with this novel is to historical contextualize the narrative of the World Fairs in Chicago while analyzing one of the key people in that time period, America's first serial killer!
This Project-Based Learning opportunity will allow students to create portfolios on the historical and industrializing Chicago during a turning point in our history.
This project will hit close to home with students because we are located just right outside of the city.
