Lights, Camera, Action...Crossing the Delaware in 9 Scenes

How does reading a drama differ from reading a novel? Middle schoolers become playwrights and explore these differences. After viewing the A&E movie,"The Crossing," groups create stage directions, write dialogue, and design sets and costumes to dramatize George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware. Referenced play, worksheets, video, and handbook are not included.
