Today we discussed the French and Indian War and focused on how history is personal and individual by relating the experiences of George Washington. We also discussed other points of view from the war using three primary sources.
The last activity was a discussion over historical writing, specifically the thesis statement style for this class. You can find the PowerPoint example we used in class under "Writing Tips" on this site. You need to write and post a rough draft thesis statement tonight or before noon tomorrow. Naviagate to the main page of this site, scroll down, and click/tap the tile for "Discussion Boards." Find the thesis board for your class and open it. You will see the question to which you are responding and a few other notes. Post your thesis as a comment and we will give you feedback starting Noon on Saturday! (NOTE: I will be commenting on Mr. Greenblatt's classes for him).
