The students have been learning about America and important Americans from discovery by Columbus, to colonization in Jamestown, to our first President, through a civil war and leading up to the first World War. We've learned about many famous Americans and their different ideologies and personalities. I want the students to assume the roles of certain individuals. The famous Americans will be placed in modern day America, in a sort of Real World/Big Brother scenario. These individuals will be grouped together in houses, and I want the students to write a short story of what their living situation would be like based off of historical facts, historical records, and their own imagination.
