Reunion in the Classroom
We have prepared some resources for teachers to use in the classroom. Reunion is the ideal partner for middle school and high school history units on the Civil War. In addition, it can be the basis of longer-term projects combining several curriculum areas including American history, English/language arts, music and drama.
“Magic Lantern” Projections
One unique aspect of Reunion is the fusing of three elements—music, dialogue and images—to tell the story, each element providing vital context for the others. Harry Hawk’s “magic lantern” projections are cued throughout the script. These two online slide shows present the original images used in production. The image captions in the slideshows correspond with cues in the published script.
