Product Description
If your students have finished Karen Hesse's historical fiction piece Out of the Dust, this project is a great way to help students demonstrate their understanding of the implications of the historical setting, conflict, and the impact on different people/people groups.

In this jigsaw styled assignment, students will compose three distinct journal entries/reflections in three varying formats from different fictional and historical perspectives. Through this, they will demonstrate mastery of literary concepts including author’s point of view and historical setting.

With a variety of characters to choose from, students will complete three writing assignments to include one free form poem (to mimic Billy Jo Kelby's narrative), a letter, and a journal entry.

Files included in this download:
-A three page description and organizer
-Template for drafting
