Aligns with anchor writing strands of Common Core for multiple grade levels!
The second installment of the popular and often downloaded Choose Your Own History (CYOH) project - This is a fun, interesting, and educational one to two week long project for students who have studied the American Civil War and the subsequent Reconstruction period. Taking after the well known and well loved Choose Your Own Adventure© book series, this is a complete project that allows students to choose one of six characters to create historical fiction using period accurate vocabulary, events, and images. Students are guided through the project from a starting storyboard outline to a full working and interactive adventure story using the included template and MS PowerPoint. ALL items needed are included for this great project, including lush graphically detailed images to use immediately. It has always been one of my student's favorite projects of their school year and I have had several students who came back as freshman and sophomores asking if I still had their finished stories! In fact, my former students have loved and appreciated the creative open-endedness of this project so much; I am currently working up more graphics for characters of different time periods to include as secondary projects - shoot me an email if you have a specific time period you are looking for!
2013 UPDATE: I am currently in a building with 1:1 Ipads, with no access to PowerPoint, so I have been having students use the awesome website Inkle Writer to create their fictional CYOA stories with!
