PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with reading “Rip Van Winkle” by Washington Irving, students will write their own story. They will practice using allusions to historical and/ or current events to highlight how the passage of time affects their Rip-like character. Also practices dialogue writing, with bonus handout on using and punctuating dialogue.

Use as an anticipatory set or as a culminating project. Students will write a short story (300 words) about a character who is out of contact with the world when a major historical event occurs. Students can use a nap like Rip Van Winkle, or come up with another way to be out of touch.

Accurate historical details are required for the project. Students may need to do some research/ review to ensure they have abundant and accurate details.
