Student Writer Instructions:
Imagine Britney Spears traveling back to Salem, Massachusetts, during the witch trials!
This writing assignment will let you to assume any identity and travel anywhere in time. You will describe what you see, using your chosen character’s voice.
First, choose your character. You can be someone famous from long ago or someone from the future. You may select a character by using the buttons, or come up with your own idea for a character.
Next, decide on a destination. Where (and when) in time will you be traveling? Again, you may choose a destination from the button, or you may come up with your own.
Now imagine your time traveler has just exited the time machine, and write a description of the destination as seen through the eyes of your character. Remember to use that character’s voice, not your own. Like you heard in chapter four of The Time Machine, describe not only what you see but also draw some conclusions about the world to which you have traveled. (The Time Traveler in chapter 4 concludes that the natives had the intellect of 5 year olds and were obviously communists).
Have fun and feel free to be creative.
