Students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information, ideas, and research in order to answer questions or solve problems. The need to conduct research is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum. Entertainer or Extra allows students to answer the following questions, among others:
Was Judy Garland the studio’s first choice for Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz?
Was Steve McQueen demoted seven times while in the Marines?
