Description

Presented at the ILCHE Conference at IMSA on 2/28/14.

Although this activity/project was conceived (originally) for a Special Education section of US History, it can be adapted to any level of students, including honors.

Using materials from a primary source reader, I will present a pair of activities which evaluate both textual and visual literacy by having students interpret a single historical event: the Boston “Massacre”. Students are assigned roles based on eyewitness court testimony from the trial of Captain Thomas Preston. After student oral presentations, the same students contribute to and help create a single shared visual presentation, utilizing quotes from the oral presentation.
