Product Description
This is a creative and fun way to introduce students to a short research project focusing on primary documents. Students will research one historical figure and make a document- from his/her perspective! Students will peer edit, publish, and more. This lesson provides plenty of opportunities for differentiation.

This research lesson is set up for Caesar Rodney , but is editable- - easily changed to your choice of writer, historian, hero, athlete, musician, leader… anyone!

Students will research and create a journal, a letter, a folder of “papers” … the opportunities are endless! Students can get creative with their writing skills- and use first point of view.

Included in this product is
A three-day EATS lesson plan with activating strategy, teaching strategies, etc.
Two worksheets
Exit Ticket
Peer editing sheet
Project Rubric
PowerPoint (includes a sample answer to the Essential Question!)

A sample answer to the Essential Question is included (How can we write narratives to develop experiences using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences?). Students get to discuss the E.Q. on Day 1- before they are expected to answer it themselves (on Day 3). They will discuss the sample answer’s strengths and weaknesses- and think critically about how the E.Q. should be answered.

Optional components include: a mini-punctuation warm-up, a short Shmoop video, a Kahoot game, and “aging” the documents.

Primary source documents are found in the history standards, too! This lesson is a great cross-curricular activity, and works well as an independent study for gifted students.
