Project Summary: We learn about the lives of people who lived in earlier times by reading letters that they wrote to other people. We can also read diaries that they kept.

People who wrote in diaries long ago wrote about their daily life just as people do today. In this project, you are going to write diary entries as a person who lived in an earlier time. In the diary, you will include information that you know about that person's life. Purpose: Your purpose is to be informative. You will be telling the things that happen in your life. Writer's Role: You are not writing as yourself. You are writing as though you are another person your age living in another time.
