About this Grantee

Ms. Ondishko and Ms. Johnson implement “I’ll Be Making History!” in which students create interactive online videos that portray important American figures. Each video includes monologues about each American’s life contributions to the United States and a song about the character. Students choose a person to study and prepare lessons that include songs and monologues which summarize the life of each American and address the question, “What would my life be like if this person had not done what s/he did, and what would I try to change?” A video on each person is then produced by each student.
