THE LESSON BEGINS...
THE TREATY OF GREENVILLE-1795
Anticipatory set: Students will sit back and observe slides of Native Americans. Near the end the slides WILL MAKE colonial encroachment evident. At the same time they will be listening to Native American Music. Students will take out their new notebooks and will make a copy of the KWL on page one writing down what they already know about the Native Americans. They will then be asked to write down what they would like to know. When the lesson is complete they will write down what they have learned.
In addition, by having students work both individually and in small groups, as well as determining information on the K-W-L chart as a whole class, many facets of the multiple intelligence learner are being served.
Goals: Students will work both independently and collaboratively by completing research, preparing treaty paragraphs, and sharing knowledge.
See portion of treaty below:
ARTICLE II. All prisoners shall, on both sides, be restored. The Indians, prisoners to the United States, shall be immediately set at liberty. The people of the United States, still remaining among the Indians, shall be delivered up in ninety days from the date hereof, to the general or commanding officer at Greeneville, Fort Wayne, or Fort Defiance; and ten chiefs of the said tribes shall remain at Greenville as hostages, until the delivery of the prisoners shall be effected.
ARTICLE III. The general boundary line between the lands of the United States, and the lands of the said Indian tribes, shall begin at the mouth of the Cayahoga River (river) and run thence up the same to the portage between that and the Tuscara was branch of the Muskingum; thence down that branch to the crossing place above Fort Lawrence; thence westerly to a fork of that branch of the great Miami River running into the Ohio, at or near which fork stood Loromie's store, and where commences the portage between the Miami of the Ohio, and the St. Mary's River, which is a branch of the Miami, which runs into Lake Erie; thence a westerly course to Fort Recovery, which stands on a branch of the Wabash; then south-westerly in a direct line to the Ohio, so as to intersect that river opposite the mouth of the Kentucky or Cuttawa River. And in consideration of the peace now established; of the goods formerly received from the United States; of those now to be delivered, and of the yearly delivery of goods now stipulated to be made here after, and to indemnify the United States for the injuries and expenses they have sustained during the war; the said Indian tribes do hereby cede and relinquish forever, all their claims to the lands lying eastwardly and southwardly of the general boundary line now described; and these lands, or any part of them be made....
