2 class periods (85 minutes each)

Class Presentation

On day 1:
Students will make final preparations to present their developed character. The narrator will have developed the setting for "Deerfield: citizens" and act as the producer to determine the order in which they will present to give the presentation coherence.

On day 2:
After the presentation, we will share a meal. Each student will stay in the character that he/she has developed.

Serve colonial food as a culmination of the unit study. (cider, gingerbread, corn chowder, corn bread, applesauce)

In Preparation for Teaching
