Wow, you never would believe how after so much teamwork amongst women, blacks, and Native Americans, they still were discriminated against by whites.

I am thinking of having my students find quotes from sources that were lifted by Jefferson and written or paraphrased in the text of the Declaration. A comparison to the Declaration of Rights and Grievances from the First Continental Congress for example.

We need a "redeemer president of these United States" perhaps now more than any time since Whitman wrote these words.

This is a very good lesson. Some of the sentences are long and challenging, but it is good to stretch the students.

Calvin Coolidge was not elected president after "turmoil" of 1919. Warren G. Harding was.

Looks like an excellent resource, however there is no way that I could dedicate 5 class days to covering one event during this era. My curriculum map would give me one day, at the most, for this topic. And this is clearly the issue as we try to move more literacy into our content areas...we still only have so many minutes a day to teach our content, so something has to give. I will do my best to incorporate literacy strategies, but not at the expense of my content.

The fist sentence of Sebastian Brandt’s letter regarding his brother and wife's passing helps us understand how sick he was. I believe it infers that he was close to dying, he writes that he was thankful to god that he had recovered but also adds of the passing of his brother and wife. This sentence gives us an understanding of how the cause of death in that time period had to do with the spread of disease and how little treatment there was.

Settler's back In James town didn't really have that much.they didn't have doctor's or medicine so people were getting sick.when the first settlers came to James town they didn't have that much food left so they were hungry and people started to starve.so when Sebastian Brandt talked about his brother and wife he didn't talk about them any more because there death was to hard on him probably.so he didn't want to talk about them. So since they didn't have medicine they had to die.

This fact helps us understand that Virgina weren't adpated to thier surrondings yet. They probable didn't adpat to thier surroundinds they were used to the way they lived from wherever they came from, and they arrived during the winter time.They probable brought diseases with them and since the arrived the winter time the weren't used to the unbearable cold. So they probable brought disesases with them, and most of the settlers probable froze to death, resulting in a lot of death.

The settlers probable didn't adpat to their surroundings until about three or four months of living there. But the settlers eventually got used living in America because they sent orders to London, England and traded with them. The things the settlers would traded with London for is cheese, vinegar, spices, tools, sugar, etc. The settlers eventually learned the ways to live in America.

I think i will need I will bring is Soil, seeds and weapons. Because I know when you get to a new place It will be difficult. But with A garden you can use it to eat and sell. And with weapons you can use it for hunting, or when people come to attack.

Sebastian Brandt does not mention his brother and wife (wyfe) again except at the beginning of the letter. These conditions tell us that it was very common for people to die back then in the 1600s in Virginia. It could've been caused by plagues or injuries but back then they may have not had the medication to treat them properly. Therefore they died. And Brandt may have not mentioned them again because maybe it was too painful to think about it. This is what I infer from Sebastian Brandt not mentioning his brother and wife (wyfe) again except at the beginning of the letter.

This fact helps us understand that Virgina settlers weren't apdated to their suroundings yet. They probable didn't apdat their suroundings because they are used the way they lived from wherever they came from. They probable also brought diseases with them and also there was probable diseases unknow to them. So thier their immune systems weren't exposed to the diseases, resulting in a lot of death.

Also, the settlers probable didn't apdat to their suroundings until like three or four months living there. It also shows that the settlers went throuh hardships because they weren't used their environment. The settlers eventually get used by sending orders to London, England and ask for certain things. The certain things they ask for is vinegar, cheese, spices, tools, sugar, and other goods that Virgina didn't have. In conclusion I think the settlers had gone through a lot of hardships.
