Why Lesson Planet?
Investigate the importance of author's point of view. Young linguists study primary source documents related to the Treaty of Casco Bay. The first source is authored by the Native American Chiefs, the second by an English Commander-in-Chief, and the third is the treaty itself. Groups study the documents, fill out an Understanding Points of View worksheet that focuses, in part, on the inflammatory language in some of the documents, and discuss their findings with the class.
