Virtual Man Behind the Myth

Description

Led by an experienced museum educator, students will explore the facts and fiction surrounding the story of Paul Revere’s midnight ride before analyzing primary source documents relating to other aspects of Revere’s long and interesting life. Each original document will be shown with its transcription and discussed as a group. Reproduction objects connected to each primary source will be analyzed to determine their material and function. This program can be presented remotely to a group of students who are on individual devices or in a classroom together.
