Your task: Write a series of diary entries as if you were a person living through a historical event. Keep in mind this is not a report on the event but the thoughts and feelings of someone living through it. Your diary should include any key terms or people involved with the event in some way.
1. If one has not been assigned, choose what type of person you will be (rich, poor, king, peasant, soldier, etc)
2. Write a one-paragraph entry about the beginning of the event. Include the date. Briefly described how the event began (if your person would know).
3. Write a one-paragraph entry about the middle of the event. Include the date. Mention whether things are better than the beginning or not.
4. Write a one-paragraph entry about the end of the event. Include the date. Describe your character’s feelings about the event now that he/she has lived through the whole thing.
