What was school like for your grandparents?

Our grandparents have knowledge of a time before us, and it’s important to learn about personal experiences in the past. Ask them about what school was like for them, and what was so different about it compared to now? How has it become better since then? What are some of the biggest changes? Compile your findings into a page turning article. Bonus points if you can get a yearbook photo of theirs for the story.

Submit your finished article to [email protected] with JR Assignment: Grandparents in the subject line.
