************************************

Greatness is avoiding poor choices by examining those of others.

No nation can credit its origins much like the United States can. A nation built on religious commitment as much as on slave labor. A body of people looking for a fresh start, but who faced swift death instead. A place famed for its opportunity from the get-go, but only for a certain few.

Cut through the boring textbook and head straight to the compelling sources that make this opening chapter to American history one of horrific treatment, deep religious faith, and a shear struggle to survive, challenging your students to answer, “How can I make better choices to avoid such a rough start in my life?” and "What does it really mean to be an immigrant?"

Included are:
- Detailed lesson plans, with strategies for all reading levels
- 1-page definition sheets for the concept “immigrant”
- 1-page HIPPOS reference handout and BONUS skill sheet Annotating a Text
- 6 2-page student worksheets with a short primary source document & graphic organizer sheet
- 6 accompanying HIPPOS answer keys, one for each document

Tips
* Plan for 60 minutes to deeply introduce, read, annotate, analyze, and discuss one of these documents as a class.
* Great for whole class instruction, small group work, homework, DBQ practice!
