Using a lithograph depicting the Pilgrims' landing, students will connect ideas represented in the art to the concepts/themes presented in Colonial American Literature.
Works I used are listed, although the assignment is adaptable to any works from the period.
90 minutes suggested for start-to-finish time for writing the essay in class; reading time for the literature is not included in the time suggestion. This could also be used as an out-of-class writing assessment.
The rubric is included.
