The Great Inca Rebellion Video Notes includes a pre-viewing timeline assignment (3 questions, Video Notes (25 questions--No Key) , a forensic Experts & Evidence identification chart (4 questions) and 1 post viewing constructed response question. This assignments prompts learners to consider forensic identification and the evaluation of historical evidence used to determine historical events. Flipped Classroom Activity Video Link provided as a courtesy Program Description Through a mix of crime-lab science, archeology, and history, this NOVA/National Geographic special presents new evidence that is changing what we know about the final days of the once-mighty Inca Empire. This probing story of archeological discovery begins in a cemetery crammed with skeletons that offer tantalizing clues about a fierce 16th-century battle between warriors of the collapsing Inca Empire and Spanish invaders. Now, the long-accepted account of a swift Spanish conquest of the Inca—achieved with guns, steel, and horses—is being replaced by a more complete story based on surprising new evidence, including what may be the first gunshot wound in the Americas. Thanks and happy teaching!!
