Historical Fiction with Dear America books
Old 01-16-2012, 07:13 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #5

I start with a book report on a Dear America book. Then I have them brainstorm events in history they might be interested in. Then I have them go to http://www.factmonster.com/dayinhistory to search their historical events on their birthday. I also have them think about family and friends who may have experienced history. Finally, I have them write their peice in a Dear Diary format. We discuss; formal and informal language, dialect and phrasing of different time periods and geographical areas.
