This activity includes an internet based primary document and worksheet on the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. I use the worksheet to help students better understand what happened during the duel between Hamilton and Burr.
The worksheet with discussion can take between 10 and 20 minutes. The website used is from a great primary source site, the Eye Witness to History site. http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/index.html
The following topic is covered in the primary document reading.
Duel at Dawn, 1804
Students read the document and answer the questions on the worksheet. I usually print out the reading for the students, but you can have students answer the questions using the website. This activity is great for reinforcing information or complimenting topics being taught in the classroom on Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. The assignment can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
