Eulogy and Obituary as Historical Evidence
Students will understand the purposes of a eulogy and an obituary and the differences between them, identify the essential elements of both, determine which is the more authentic historical record, and be able to associate an individual's life with important historical events. This lesson is based on the eulogy and obituary for Everett Dirksen.
