I feel very strongly about both of my projects, but I am choosing project #1 for a couple reasons. First I feel that I can have a more concrete outcome with this project. I aim to hopefully make some changes in BLS’s history curriculum, or at least start that conversation. In addition to this I feel that I have a lot more readily available resources when it comes to the first project, because there are plenty of students and teachers, at this school and in the area that I can interview. For the second project it would be harder to get the stories of immigrants, especially for times like the Mexican American war. Lastly I feel like project #1 is more broad and I could possibly involve some topics and themes that I brought up in project #2 as well since they are similar in a sense.
