PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Including 6 primary sources divided into 27 distinct sections/sheets over 55 pages, this unit presents the following complete texts in cloze format (with answer keys):

• The Mayflower Compact (1620, in both original 17th century English and modern English)
• The Peirce Patent (1621, in original, 17th century English)
• The Farewell Letter of Pastor John Robinson to the Pilgrims (1620, in modern English)
• A Letter from Robert Cushman to Edward Southworth from Dartmouth (1620, in modern English)
• A Letter from Edward Winslow from the New Colony, 11 December 1621 (in modern English)
• A Letter from "Fortune" passenger William Hilton about the New Colony (1621, in modern English)

Ready-to-print, ready-to-distribute, ready-to-mark, this collection provides an authentic snapshot of the experiences of the Pilgrims from 1620-1621 -- from their ideals and the contexts of setting out, through their (dis)agreements and challenges, and to a positive assessment of the new land (including a description of the first "Thanksgiving").

Simply download the PDF, select the texts you want for a given class or group of students, print off those sheets, hand them out, and you are done!

Note: The first two documents -- the "Mayflower Compact" and the "Pierce Patent" -- are given in their original versions to give students a sense of the language of the time.

These original versions are transliterations of the handwritten documents and so are in 17th century English, requiring a higher level of language skill than the modernized English in the included letters -- perfect for gifted/talented students.

Because the Mayflower Compact is a core text for American History, it is provided in both 17th century English and Modern English to provide maximum versatility in the mixed ability classroom.
