Mapping the New World

The Stanford History Education Group has published a new United States history curriculum, Reading Like a Historian. Each lesson revolves around a central historical question and features sets of primary documents modified for groups of students with diverse reading skills and abilities.

The Colonial Unit connects to many of the themes we are discussing this fall. Check out the "Mapping the New World" lesson plan which asks students to think about why maps change over time by comparing a 1636 Powhatan map with this 1651 Virginia map.
