I know this is late...maybe you can use this for next year. I read the book Encounter and then read part of Columbus' journal that gives his perspective of the experience of the book Encounter. You could also read Pedro's journal which is the account of a sailor on one of Columbus' ship. (realistic fiction). From there you can lead a good discussion on different perspectives of the same event. Let the students form their own opinion of what they think from the three reading. It becomes a good discussion on the subject.
