Creating a monument for an explorer
Assignment in brief
How should we commemorate historical figures?
Using your textbook, notes and other sources, you and a partner will be creating two monuments for a European explorer:
- One from a European perspective
- One from the indigenous people’s perspective.
Along with your monuments, please include:
- the European country represented by the explorer
- where they explored, dates of exploration
- a paragraph explaining WHY each remembers him the way they do
- a works cited page in Chicago format
