In Language Arts and Social Studies we are moving into the Revolutionary War. For the last week we have focused on the relationship between the colonies and the British. Students have examined laws passed by Britain and the colonists' reactions to these laws. With their knowledge of these reactions, and their analysis of the 2nd presidential debate, students will be participating in a town hall debate of our own. Students will take on the roll of a specific historical figure to convince neutralists to join their cause.
Over the next month, we will continue our journey through the Revolutionary War. We will look at the battles, strategies, outcomes, and heros of this war.
Students will also be looking at heros from another perspective by reading fantasy books. After selecting a book, students will work in groups to analyze this book and share their thoughts, opinions and insights.
