Gallery Walk / Exit Ticket
Collaborative Poster (Groups) Materials include chart paper and 4 color markers. Students work in teams of 4. Each team will create a poster to address ONE essential question and support their argument:
How might a people survive and grow from evil and injustice?
Why are multiple voices and perspectives important when learning about history?
Should frontiers or borderlands be walls to keep people out or place for people to meet?
Is history complicated? Is violence simple? (to paraphrase Ghost River)
Each team member will use one color as evidence of their contribution to the poster.
Write the essential question in the center of the poster.
Make a claim that answers the question. Put the claim under the question
Include evidence to support the claim. Include: 1 quote; 2 original sentences; and 1 symbol to answer the question.
Each team member will share why they selected the question (e.g. why the question is important to them) when they present their poster to the class. Each student will present what they contributed to the poster.
Gallery Walk / Exit Ticket (Individuals) Students will display their posters. Ask students to look for common claims and unique evidence as they walk around and read the posters. (Provide students with paper to record their findings.)
Individually, students will complete an exit ticket:
Common claims include…
Unique evidence is…
After looking at the other posters, I will keep / change my claim / evidence because…
The Lancaster jail was located a half block to the north from 1753 to 1851. The last remaining Conestoga Indians were held here in protective custody in 1763. They were killed by a vigilante group, the Paxton Boys. No arrests were made.
Ask students to review the Pennsylvania historical marker for the "Conestoga Indian Town." Students will rewrite the marker based on what they learned from Ghost River.

There are forms of backmatter, types of paratexts, and textual examples that have been largely left unaddressed. I have sought to provide suggestive examples about how the material on Digital Paxton could be used to gain further insights into the social world surrounding these texts.
By concentrating on paratexts, my intention is to show that texts were presented to the audience in a variety of different ways, sometimes by the author and other times by printers. The various modes of presentations provide insights into how the Paxton Boys debate unfolded. And most significantly, paratexts affected the way readers understood the printed arguments for and against the rioters, and so help us to understand a little more about the appeal of Paxton Boys texts.
