  • In November 1630, John Baker was “whipped for shooteing att fowle on the Sabboth day”; and in June 1631, it was ordered that Phillip Ratliffe should be whipped, have his ears cut off, and be banished “for vttering mallitious and scandulous speeches against the goumt. & the church of Salem.
  • The inattention paid in the official record to women or indigenous land compels us to force open gaps and bring alternative narratives to light. Without this work, John Winthrop’s will be the only story told in textbooks about this country’s colonial history.
  • The Puritan freemen may have the loudest voices in the archive, but theirs are not the only narratives being told.
  •  
    When historians look through more evidence they come to understandings that students never get to see becuase their teachers may only rely on the evidence that is part of the liturgy of the US History narrative canon. In this instance, routine court records will tell us much more about puritan Massachusetts than a John Winthrop sermon.

History in Dispute: Charlottesville and Confederate Monuments | Teaching with the News ... - 9 views

    Hi Mary,
    Thank you for this amazing share. Down here in Australia there has been a similar event regarding monuments in the news, just after the Charlottesville monument events unfolded. We can definately incorporate and contextualise this for Australia as a combined or global event.

    A link to an Australian news article that could also be utilised to expand young American minds in understanding that this is a global issue also.

    Dear Faye,

    Thank you for your comment and the link you posted. It will be interesting to look at this as a global issue. Recently I also saw some articles about similar events in Canada.

    Hope you have a good school year!

The Robert Prager Lynching - 1 views

  •  
    Excerpts of newspaper articles describing the April 1918 lynching of a 45 year old Illinois coal miner. These articles can be used in a DBQ or as a launching point for student research into the incident itself. What can we find out about Robert Prager? How can we be certain? What does his death tell us about American public opinion in World War I - and how do we know that?

Setting students into these for "real" research may find even more.
