In the Classroom: Charlie in the New World

As some know I’m a big fan of Charlie Chaplin and last year I brought him into my classroom for a year-long study.  We spent months studying this wonderful silent film artist before creating a film in his style.  Since we also do an in-depth study of the Pilgrims we had our Charlie travel on the Mayflower to the New World.  Unfortunately, because we used some background images that we aren’t sure of in terms of copyright I can’t put the whole thing here for you to see, but I can show you some excerpts to give you a taste.
