The Great Convergence: The Pueblo and Spaniards Meet. A Unit of Study for Grades 8-12.
Arevalo, John; Drake, James; Sesso, Gloria; Vigilante, David
Focusing on the great convergence of Native Americans and Spaniards in the American Southwest introduces students to the indigenous Anasazi, the Spanish Colonists, and the ensuing conflict of cultures culminating with the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. This unit is based on and uses primary resources taken from documents, artifacts, journals, diaries, newspapers, and literature from the period being studied. It is designed to supplement texts that pay little or no attention to the Southwest region of the United States and makes clear that the Southwest had a complex history that antedated the arrival of English speaking people. The unit includes background materials that provide an overview, lesson plans, and student resources. (BT)
