The Road to Revolution

U.S. History:
Writing Assignment: Look up the word "revolution" Write down the definition. Based on what you've learned so far from lecture and reading, do you believe the American Revolution was a "revolution"?

Class discussion: Compare and contrast the goals of national leaders, loyalists, women, traders and slaves in the American Revolution. Complete a graphic organizer on the white board. Draw a web on the board. In the center, write Revolution. Branching out draw two circles. In one, write yes and in the other, write no. Branching out from these circles, list which groups were likely to support or not support independence. Branching from each of these groups, list reasons why or why not.

Continue: "The Patriot".
