This website is an excellent resource for teaching Early English Settlement. The first top half of the site is historical background knowledge. This is great for teachers to be able to refer to before teaching to help strengthen their knowledge of the topic before having to teach it to the class. Following the background information, there is an outline of a lesson plan. The lesson plan includes objectives, materials, procedure, and assessment. This lesson plan will be a “History Detective” activity. The student will investigate the Early English settlements through a variety of sources such as pictures, journals and documents. They will then be asked a series of Historical Reading questions.
