There is no required homework, however, extension activities are suggested and will be presented at the last class by students who chose to participate. Extension activities include making primary sources for their character (family record, town map, pew receipts, apprenticeship agreement, and ship manifest) with the option to age the documents to make them appear more authentic. Learners will also be given weekly journal prompts to help them create a first-person account of each of the events.
