Pocahontas as a Resource
Students will view the film and write guided responses in
journals. Journal responses will be shaped by a set of questions that students will use through out the unit
to evaluate resources they use. Students will begin to note possible inconsistencies
in the film.
Students will watch the Disney movie Pocahontas as a
piece of historical evidence.
Materials and Resources Needed
In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware
and software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the
LETSNet website. We assume that teachers using our Internet-based lessons or activities have a computer
(PC or Macintosh) with the necessary hardware components - mouse, keyboard, monitor,
etc. - as well as software - operating system, TCP/IP software, networking or dial-up
software, e-mail and a World Wide Web client program, preferably Netscape, but perhaps
Mosaic or Lynx. In the section below, we specify any "special" hardware or software
requirements for a lesson or activity - in addition to those described above - and the level of Internet access required to do the activity.
