The American Revolution was a war, and as such had a high human cost. The aim of this class is not to glorify war or death, but to show the causes and effects of events both to individuals and from a broader perspective. I do not show images that are not age-appropriate and do not encourage conversation that focuses on celebrating the death or destruction of any people or place. I send students an optional Kahoot! review and Blooket game each week. Learners log in to both resources with a URL link that I provide. The link is only for enrolled learners. Learners only need to enter their first names to play the review game, no other personal information is required. A separate link is sent each week.
