This semester my EdMethods students used Microsoft Sway for their final lesson design projects. This document-based lesson by Nick Campagna asks student to use original source documents to explore different accounts of the Wounded Knee Massacre.

How do we analyze primary sources to construct a history of the Wounded Knee Massacre?

~ Nick Campagna

After you read these documents you are going to create a thesis statement in response to the essential question. Be sure to collect evidence from the text to support your thesis statement. When doing this consider whether the evidence you are choosing appeals to a reader through ethos, pathos or logos.
