Product Description
In this source analysis activity, students study The Boston Massacre by comparing Paul Revere’s infamous engraving with the court testimony of British Captain Thomas Preston. This lesson is designed to engage students in deciding what really happened on that night by considering how perspective and bias shape the way that stories are told and how the engraving served to further the call for independence.

After an introduction to the Boston Massacre, students evaluate and analyze the engraving and the testimony, paying special attention to any discrepancies that show how the engraving functioned as a piece of war propaganda. If needed, a “using sources” guide is included to help students know the right questions to ask as they analyze them. Students record notes in a graphic organizer that helps them prepare for writing their response. Also provided is a writing guide for students who are struggling to compose a response in a structured format that includes evidence from each source.
