Product Description
This project is a research and writing activity my students do while they are reading Elisa Carbone's novel Blood on the River (It's part of my Blood on the River Novel Unit), although it can be used separately since it doesn't refer specifically to novel characters or events, just the historical time period (King James, Captain Christopher Newport, Native Americans, the sea journey to Virginia, etc.). It lets students examine the social and political issues of the time from different perspectives.
As with any RAFT, students choose a role, audience, format, and topic to write about. (My students use Microsoft Publisher to do the brochure format.)
I always love grading these - my GATE kids especially come up with such creative perspectives, and they really get into character!
There is a rubric included.
