Quick Ideas for Using the Video:

  • Use the video as a “jumping off point” for study of the Kennedy Administration. Go back in time from the assassination through the Kennedy presidency through the lens of other first person recollections your students can find via research and/or by interviewing parents, family members, and community members.
  • Have students create their own “I Remember” video focused on the Sixties or another topic of your/their choice with a family member, community member, or friend.


*Topical videos are filmed on location in the classroom/workspace/laboratory, in studio, or a combination of both to explain and/or demonstrate specific concepts, events, topics, or processes.
