Middle schoolers read one of the most important documents in our nation's history: The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. After everyone reads the proclamation, they set out to write a "You Were There" type of report on it. They pretend to be slave who have just heard the news, and write down their reactions and emotions. All of the reports are typed up and shared with the class.
