The students will write diary entries, create a plot line, and draw a map. The kids must be encouraged to pick a historical novel that really interests them.
There are so many fascinating events in history that something will appeal to everyone. My experience is that when a student selects a book "just to have a book" they don't get as much out of the experience and it's almost painful for them to identify with the character enough to write journal entries.
In addition to their diary, they will need to complete a plot line that chronicles events. We've explored plot lines at different points throughout the year. As they have done with geography assignments and the like, they must include a compass rose, legend, and a few surrounding locations.
Five diary entries of two paragraphs a piece can get really lengthy, so I typically ask them to cut it down to their favorite one or two entries.
I want everyone to see the different plot lines and fabulous maps. Sometimes, these turn out better than the diaries because there isn't as much worry about using someone else's voice the main character.
