Florence Nightingale Collection - Personal Correspondence Classroom Activity
This collection of letters shows Nightingale's concerns and her challenges with developing policies that would be beneficial to the poor and sick. Nightingale's primary concern here is sanitation and the care of wounded soldiers. The letters also contain a peek into Nightingale's private life, describing her views on poetry, plants, and her love of the countryside. Across a series of activities and tasks, students will use the letters as a catalyst to respond to domestic issues and politics during the 1800's.
