Lesson Plan


Created by Dr. J. Peter Moore and Dr. Rosanne Altstatt, Purdue University, John Martinson Honors College.

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Recognize points of correspondence between monuments and the controversies that they generate. 2. Recognize disparities between monumental structures. 3. Develop an appreciation for difference, without reducing materials to a hierarchical ranking of better and worse.
