Description

Class Experience

Students will have a clear understanding of the discontent in the American colonies in the years leading up to the Revolutionary War. They will study several events that led up to the Revolutionary War, making decisions for their character.  
As an experienced tour guide on the Freedom Trail and National Mall, I have a love and passion for sharing American history. I can’t wait to take your student on this incredible Colonial adventure!
There is no required homework, however, extension activities are suggested and students will get a chance to showcase their portfolio in the classroom at the end of the class.  Extension activities include making primary sources for their character (family record, town map, pew receipts, apprenticeship agreement, and ship manifest) with the option to age the documents to make them appear more authentic.  Learners will also be given weekly journal prompts to help them create a first-person account of each of the events.  

Optional questions to help them think about their character and the choices they would have made during the pre-Revolution will be posted in the classroom 3x's per week.

No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There will be general descriptions of war-time events, which will include phrases like, "11 men were shot, and 5 died."  There will be no gory or specific details of death provided.
