So in my Early American History class we're putting Columbus on trial. I got the idea from the teacher I worked with last year and also from the book Rethinking Columbus, but I'm still finding myself making everything up from scratch. So any resources you all might have would be very welcome!
Last class I had the defense and prosecution teams come up with a list of witnesses. The jury members each had to come up with an identity (past, present, real, fictional, etc). Before they did that I had them examine these images:
(actually it was a different illustration from this same book)
I had planned to hold the debate ON Columbus Day (which we do not have off), but like everything else that plan ganged aft agley.
P.S., in my insomnia I finally got around to updating my blogroll! Apologies to anyone I've left off.
