Just a reminder, we will be meeting at 7:30PM on Thursday to discuss the lesson plan portion of the assignment. The model we will be using for those plans is this article, so please be sure to have it read by then. If you haven’t touched it, you should note that it requires the use of multiple similar primary sources. You have the links on the Blackboard page to start you on that quest, or you can use the material you’ve found on the trip so far. For example, I’ve heard a number of teachers are interested in that chair Tad talked about in the Peabody-Essex Museum. That’s awesome, but to have that work you are going to need a number of pictures of chairs for the comparison aspect to make sense. If you don’t have a lot of chair pictures, don’t dispair. There are probably pictures of many Seventeenth or Eighteenth Century chairs on the Web. Try a Google Image search to find more.
