Facing the Ghosts of Our Past

A reading of a New York Times review of the movie Beloved launches research into how the Civil War affected the lives of people living during this period. Creative thinkers select a person from an included list of historical figures and others involved in the war, and craft a first-person narrative. A list of questions that writers should try to answer in their narratives is included.

I LOVE all the resources and printable worksheets! My girls are still in elementary school and the printable worksheets really help me with their homeschool curriculum!
