How much do you really know about Paul Revere? Sure, you know about his famous ride from the poem written by Henry W. Longfellow, but what about “The Man Behind the Myth”? That was the topic of discussion when Emily from the Paul Revere House in Boston came to DCS to visit each of the four 5th grade classrooms on Wednesday, February 19th.
Emily piqued the students’ interest with some pictures and stories of Paul’s life. The students then had the opportunity to look at primary sources from Paul’s adventures, scrutinizing them in smaller groups. These sources included advertisements, letters and excerpts from his accounting logs. Emily then gave small groups of students a reproduced artifact from Revere’s life – a toothbrush, writing implements, saddlebags, a silver cup and more. Students connected these artifacts to the primary sources and formulated a complete and more rounded picture of this famous man’s life.Students learned that there was a lot more to Paul Revere than that one midnight ride.
Thank you, Emily, for your wonderful visit! You helped make this famous man come alive for us.
