Revolutions - Course Description
Monday, August 13, 2012
In this block the students examined the American Revolution, studying it as a blueprint for subsequent revolutions. They read excerpts from journals, documents, pamphlets, and letters from this period of history. They were frequently given quizzes based on the previous day’s discussion or the previous night’s reading assignment. They were required to create a block book which contained artistic work, essays, a quotes page and timeline. Finally, they were given a comprehensive final exam that demonstrated their mastery of the subject.
