We continued examining the American Revolution today after starting out class with a quiz over Chapter 7. We took some extra time to complete and debrief an HAPP DocBlock over an excerpt from the autobiographical A Soldier's Narrative by Joseph Plumb Martin. We then examined two different historian's interpretations of the Declaration of Independence and tied them back to the DocBlock selection.
Tonight is your first break from chapter notes in a while, but you do need to read the short selection under Period 3 on the website about "Republican Motherhood" and be prepared to discuss it tomorrow.
One additional note. Starting tomorrow, Friday tutorials, second half, we will be discussing the most missed questions from whatever is the most recent quiz and/or exam. Students are encouraged to come to these tutorials if they are performing more poorly on quizzes and exams than they would prefer.
