As I discussed in this post, my US Women's History since 1870 class will be working on a project in which the ultimate goal is to be able to recreate a class session or two from the middle of the 20th Century.
Here is the assignment that I developed for the course, in three stages. Note the use of individual and group work, online and IRL activities, and deep research in the archives of the school.
As always, I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions. [The full course syllabus is here.]
