Diary of a Revolutionary War Soldier Project

As part of an integrated curriculum, I love when students get to create, adapt, and adopt a character from the historical setting being studied.  This project was part of our social studies curriculum with lots of in-class time given to explore resources, create their character, as well as produce the final product.  Students would use the textbook as a way to build knowledge but then could branch out and use other resources as well, whether it be web-based or books.

Subjects involved:  Social studies, Writing, Reading.

Diary of a Revolutionary War Soldier Mission:  To produce a 10 entry diary from the perspective of a Revolutionary War soldier with at least one letter from home.

Goal:  A book that looks and reads like a diary from a developed character.
