Crossing the Delaware: A Visual Myth or Reality?
Assessment Strategies

The local school board has decided to remove Emanuel Leutze's painting, Washington Crossing the Delaware, from the high school lobby. Several high school students persuaded the school board to do so because the painting is not historically accurate. Develop a one-page essay arguing for returning the painting to the school lobby or for supporting the school board's decision. Be sure to use evidence from class to support your viewpoint.
