Planning a Historical Fiction Narrative Based on Expert Trades

Pupils plan for a historical fiction narrative based on their previous research on expert trades from the Colonial Era. Using the four-square graphic organizer, individuals organize the information they want detailed in each of their four paragraphs. For homework, young writers craft a short comic strip that represents the plan for their narrative.
