Website Spotlight: The Pilgrims' Leiden
Website URL: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~netlapm/Page01.htm
Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.
In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.
I ask the students to work through the following links:
Briefing: Pilgrim Life in Leiden
Who were the Pilgrims?
The Political Background
Coming to Leiden
Leiden, a Fair and Beautiful City
Toleration and Cultural Confrontation
Pilgrim Occupations in Leiden
The Pilgrims and The University of Leiden
Botany, Anatomy, and Strategy
Why the Pilgrims Left Leiden
I hope you will use this blog post in conjunction with both the modules on my Learning Professor wiki and the numerous other posts in my Website Spotlight series.
1. The website spotlighted in this post fits within the following U.S. History survey course module on the wiki:
