In order to compare both the colonial perspective and British perspective, students will be asked to analyzing Paul Revere's engraving of the Boston Massacre. They will then, read the textbook version of the event and compare the engraving with the perspective presented in the history book. This will allow students to see that there are two sides to every story and find out what really happened that day in Boston and how this event would ultimately lead to the American Revolution. Students will simultaneously be learning visual arts standards as they learn about the colors and elements of the engraving and why Paul Revere chose the design and elements he did. Students will walk away from this lesson with a better understanding of one of the main events that led to the revolution and a better understanding of how to analyze historical works of art.
