About Melvil Dewey

Esperanza Rising

Your teacher will put you in groups of three. Everyone will need to contribute to the group. With the help of your group you are going to create a timeline for the important events that you have studied. Everyone will create their own timeline. The timeline will need to include important events in the book Esperanza Rising. You are going to make a timeline of Esperanza's life. You will need to choose the events to include. These events will be included in your documentary. Do not worry about putting in the dates. Today you will only put in the headline and the text in the order in which they happened. In the headline column, you will write the name of the event. In the text column, you will explain what happened in the event. I have completed the first one for you. Refer to the text in the book. Make sure you include the important events that should be highlighted when telling others about Esperanza's life.
Directions to accessing the template:
