About this book
CLASS PROJECT: A Parallel Timeline
Have students identify the main historical events against which the action of the book takes place and arrange them on a timeline. They should then identify key story events and arrange these events on the opposite side of the timeline. You may want to have students construct this parallel timeline on a roll of mural paper. Use the finished timeline to review what was happening in American history and what was happening to Johnny Tremain.
