Product Description
Was Christopher Columbus a good person or was he a villain? Children across America learn stories of his heroism and intelligence, while most college and high school students learn about his brutality and callousness. In this assignments students will read four primary and secondary sources (excerpts) that help shed light on who Columbus really was. Students are then asked to address the prompt by writing: “'Christopher Columbus should be celebrated in the United States!' Based on what you know and the documents, please defend or refute (disprove) the argument." Great way to align your study of Christopher Columbus to the Common Core and a way to engage students in critical thinking! Ready to use!
