When evaluating student role plays, observe whether students have incorporated information from the text and made inferences from the information. Role plays might convey the following:

  • the Beothuks might feel unhappy or angry when they find the trap because it means that the Europeans are hunting on traditional Beothuk hunting grounds. This means there will be fewer animals for the Beotuk to trap.
  • the Beothuks might take the trap because they don't want Europeans trapping the animals that the Beothuk need to survive
  • the Beothuks might feel justified in taking the trap because they feel that the Europeans have no right to hunt on traditional Beothuk hunting grounds
