- Step-by-step instructions

- 3 page excerpt from "Of Plymouth Plantation" by William Bradford

- Matching audio links for each excerpt to use with struggling readers- Sheesh! That took a long time to match up!

- Song/poem option to summarize the excerpt

- Station activity with prepared thinking questions

- Daily starter questions to get students thinking about each day's lesson

The original text is used here so that students have the opporunity to examine primary historical texts. The original text is challenging to read, but as much as students text and change the spelling of words, they should be able to figure out the unusual spelling of some of the words. I did locate audio for the original text version of Bradford's "Of Plymouth Plantation" and matched the recording to the text in case students need help.

Students will be engaged with this lesson. It definitely brings life to some older literature that doesn't always catch students' attention.
