Grades6 to 12
In the ClassroomHave students read one of the "valley dweller" stories during a lesson on the effects of Revolution and political separation in the colonies. Have students read different stories, or at least choose from one of a few stories, and write a letter based on the reading. Students can write a letter from the perspective of their chosen valley dweller, detailing what life is like to someone not in the immediate area. This is a great way to wrap up a lesson, allowing students to reflect on the days events.
