Columbus - Hero or Villain?
With this primary source text set, you will receive eight primary and secondary source documents that will help students answer this guiding question. To culminate, you can have students write an essay or short constructed response, or you can use the documents to facilitate a class debate or Socratic Seminar.
Whatever your method or lesson roll-out, your students will have a much clearer grasp of this polarizing historical figure. Perhaps more importantly, they will be able to analyze primary and secondary source documents in order to formulate a claim on a writing/discussion prompt.
