In Margie Palatini's (out of print?!?!) tub-boo-boo, an older sister pretends she's a newscaster covering the events of something embarrassing happening in her home with her little brother. This inspired me to give my students permission to use a "Newscaster's voice" to cover events from history that occurred before there were actually newscasters. My teacher model is about George Washington crossing the Delaware, so I invite you to consider this lesson as a "Writing Across the Curriculum" idea for Presidents' Day.
