We walked through our first scored discussion today during class. This first discussion was admittedly over two very dense academic texts, but the twofold goal was to walk you through the process we will use for full scored discussions with extra support and coaching while also exposing you to two differing interpretations of the nature of the American Revolution. Over the next few days as we explore the Revolution, we will be asking you to connect these experiences and understandings to the arguments presented by both Bailyn and Nash. Your first "live" discussion will be in the next unit in two weeks time. We will post the readings and directions at least a week ahead of that so you will have time to read, analyze, and collaborate before the in class portion of the discussion.
Homework tonight: Finish up chapter 6 for tomorrow and post your ROUGH DRAFT thesis statements on the discussion board for your class by midnight tonight! http://www.ghhsapush.com/discussion-boards.html
