"I" Witness to History

Young journalists write two to four diary entries from the point of view of a person involved in a historical event. They focus on including facts, clear narration, and accurate description of the individual's feelings. Use this lesson in a cross-curricular writing assignment between language arts and U.S. history, or to bring emphasis to the importance of descriptive writing.
