Students read a brief account on the Battle of the Alamo and answer 10 questions. They then complete 4 creative tasks involving different points of view, a museum exhibit, news headlines, and a memorial. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Santa Anna considered his opposition "insurgents." Explain the meaning of that term and then identify the term you think the "insurgents" would have called themselves.
--Explain the meaning of "they exercised the greatest vigilance."
--Describe how Colonel Duque's order was in opposition to generally accepted military rules.
--Why were the woman and the slave spared from death?
--Can you identify any bias in this account? If so where, and if not, why not?
