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.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
