This project asks students to pick a perspective on the Renaissance or Scientific Revolution and then use that character to write an informative story about the topic From here, they are to conduct any research they need to supplement their classwork to create a book about their soldier's experience in the war. Students use story jumper to create their books making it a great tool for teachers to use to check on historical accuracy and monitor student work. This includes the directions and a grading rubric.
My students really enjoyed this project because it gave them a choice in what they wanted to learn more about. Their books were really entertaining and informative as a result.
