Students use Google Docs to compose scouting reports on major historical figures. Scouting reports allow students to evaluate Point of View as well as each figure’s historical impact. Students then use these scouting reports to aid them in a ‘draft’ where they choose figures to help them solve a historical problem. This activity puts students at the center of learning as they discover what is important to include in their scouting reports, as well as how they craft their response to the problem only from the POV of the figures they were able to draft. Note: This could also work well in a literature based class where students would create scouting reports on major characters in novels and have these various characters analyze various components of stories, etc.
