We started today with a debrief of some of the significant themes from Chapter 5, followed by a discussion over your rough draft thesis statements. After clarifying many of the aspects of the questions and the crafting of thesis statements in response, you were assigned the task of revising your rough drafts and posting your revision as a reply to your original post on the thesis board. Please have these done as early as possible this evening so that I can give you feedback as necessary on the board.
The rest of the period we conducted our first exercise in historiography for the semester as we examined four different perspectives on the American revolution from four different historians. After we finish up this unit, you will be asked to reflect on those points of view once more.
Tonight you need to post your thesis revision if you did not do so yet and you also need to finish up your Chapter 6 notes for tomorrow!
