For the next few days, we're watching the PBS series - "We Shall Remain" and having an ongoing discussion about it in class. Students are expected to watch the entire episode 1 - "After the Mayflower" and complete the video notes/questions. Here is a link to the videos online if a student misses a day or two.
After watching the trailer, click on "Browse More Video" when it pops up. Then select the appropriate episode.
