PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Trail of Tears Seminal Texts Primary Sources Teaching Pack, Cherokee Native Americans lesson makes an excellent start of the year lesson for an American Literature course as it touches on the seminal US texts from the nation’s beginnings in order to show how literature reflects a culture. The themes that emerge throughout the progression of the texts – heritage, family roots, personal history, freedom, and the future – are perfect for the “getting to know you” type assignments at the beginning of the year, and two create tasks to fill that purpose are included here. Additionally, the unit lightly touches on the idea of argument and close reading for rhetorical analysis to allow you to gauge your students’ abilities early on. Students will identify arguments that President Andrew Jackson and Chief John Ross presented regarding their opinion on the removal of the Cherokee from the South. Students will evaluate whether President Andrew Jackson or Chief John Ross had more persuasive arguments. Finally, they will read a poem written by a Cherokee Native American poet and compose their own work, which makes an excellent "getting to know you" activity.

Included in this teaching bundle:
1) Several options for videos (links) and texts for background reading and notes
2) Guided lesson plans for all three texts
3) Common core standards
4) Comprehension questions for all three texts with questions
