In the lesson, students employ criteria to judge the colony’s success, considering evidence from a range of contemporary sources.
Students grapple with the reasons why contemporary sources might not be completely accurate, before comparing these sources with historians’ interpretations. This is challenging work.
Finally, students employ their new knowledge to writing labels for paintings displayed in a museum exhibition on the Plymouth Colony. Some great evidence and interpretations work.
