In this lesson specifically designed to address the Common Core students read two accounts of the origin of the Inca people. One is based on Inca oral history and the other on historical understanding of the events. Students analyze both sources for loaded language that might indicate which is mythical and which is historical. Both accounts are fairly short leaving the focus on the analysis and less on the reading making it appropriate for multiple grade levels.
