We started off today with the Chapter 5 quiz. We followed this up with a breakdown of thesis writing using the comments I made on your posts over the weekend. We finished up the day by examining four different historian's views on the American Revolution as they each spoke to the question of just how revolutionary was the Revolution. We will spend a significant amount of time in this class deconstructing arguments made by historians an a variety of topics, so this was your first real taste.
Chapter 6 is due tomorrow and Chapter 7 on Wednesday! Remember to post your thesis revisions to the discussion board tonight! Mr. Greenblatt's classes: I will post feedback before 4th period tomorrow so that you can make any necessary additional revisions. I will pop in to see if you have questions as well.
