PLEASE NOTE: We have decided to move the Chapter 7 notes due date from Monday to TUESDAY, 9/17/2019! :)
Today we started off with a quiz over Chapter 6. Afterwards we continued discussing the American Revolution, first completing and debriefing a DocBlock HAPP analysis of an excerpt from Common Sense by Thomas Paine. We next discussed how primary sources related to the Stamp Act reveal fundamental misunderstandings between the American Colonists, British officials, and the average British citizen regarding the nature of American Colonial culture and identity.
We finished up by discussing the events at Lexington and Concord which would eventually mushroom into the Revolutionary War. We examined two brief primary sources with an eye on determining credibility and historical reliability.
This weekend, please look over the comments on your thesis revisions and take one more pass at them to correct any remaining issues or errors. Almost all could benefit from an editing pass to help simplify and clarify your wording.
Chapter 7 is now due on Tuesday and Chapter 8a (on the class calendar, click on the 8a event to open a dialogue box detailing what 8a covers) is due on Thursday!
Mr. Hutchison's 2nd period will have picture day during class on Monday!
