Product Description
Help you students get a better understanding of the importance of the Zenger trial with this play written in Southern dialect. The play includes not only an easier to understand version of the trial, it also allows students to participate by reading several parts. To keep students engaged, the play includes background information about the reasons Zenger was sued and a timeline of events leading up to his arrest. As students view the timeline, they are asked to make a warrant for Governor Cosby, who is the real guilty party in this historical event. Then, as the play is read, students complete four questions. The numbers for the questions appear on the pages where the answers are read so that students are prompted to answer them. Thanks for visiting and happy history! Penny Wood
