Assignment

"The assignment is to do a "Diary" for their character. A day in the life one day before their scene takes place. The play takes place in  Rural New Hampshire in 1901. I have asked them to source their ideas from the play itself, Our Town, and to use two print books, and two digital sources. I want them to go to the lIbrary and not just hop on the internet. Basically I want them to have to research a bit of the period the character they are portraying lived in so they can get an idea of life at that time."
