Florence Nightingale Collection - Letters to James George Fife


In this lesson, students will examine the collection of letters sent by Florence Nightingale to James George Fife, a Royal Engineer working on Indian irrigation systems. The letters reveal the deep concern for the Indian people that Nightingale possessed and the policies the British government used when dealing with colonial affairs. Across a series of activities and tasks, the students will develop an argument on the feelings and treatment of colonial citizens and culminate the lesson by creating an essay summarizing their evidence and argument.
