Website Spotlight: Jamestown (National Park Service)

Website URL:

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.


I ask the students to work through the following links:


John Rolfe

John Smith

Reverend Robert Hunt: First Chaplain at Jamestown

Pocahontas: Her Life and Legend


The First Legislative Assembly

Bacon's Rebellion

The Powhatan Indian World

The Royal African Company: Supplying Slaves to Jamestown

The Indispensable Role of Women at Jametown

"How to govern and how to obey"


Concluding Note:

I hope you will use this blog post in conjunction with both the modules on my Learning Professor wiki and the numerous other posts in my Website Spotlight series.

1. The website spotlighted in this post fits within the following U.S. History survey course module on the wiki:
