Title: Extra, Extra!! Mary Rowlandson's Captivity Newscast
Description: This lesson will be an interdisciplinary lesson that involves both English Language Arts and Social Studies (History). The lesson will be primarily technology-based and also project-based that will have the students performing historical research and developing a "photo-story" through a PowerPoint presentation for their own newscast. The lesson will be part of a larger unit that combines literature from the early 1600s through the 1800s, and will primarily focus on the encounters and relationships of European explorers with the Native American life in North America. The lesson, in particular, will look at the Puritan life and beliefs, and how this life style influenced history, literature, and one woman's captivity with the Native American Indian tribe of the Wampanoag. Through research and analysis of the captivity narrative of Mary Rowlandson, the students will compose a newscast that will track the history of the events of King Philip's War and tie those events into a narrow report on Mary Rowlandson's actual captivity through the "removes" that she details in her narrative.
