Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World . American Experience . WGBH | PBS.
A must see for those interested in how America became a global power; also interesting to see how African Americans were able to rise up through the ranks on a whale ship in the early 19th century. Not just for Melville enthusiasts!
About Bill Sullivan
I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
