This class will show students what it was like living in the 18th century (the 1700s) in Boston at the time of the American Revolution. The class will be taught by Jacob and Nancy Bloom (both Outschool teachers.)

Homework assignments will be designed to let the students spend a short amount of time outside of class reviewing the class material, such as: Play one of the games we've learned with a friend or relative. Teach a parent a couple of the rules of good manners we studied. Write a journal entry each day, of at least one line, telling something you did that day. You can use the penmanship we studied, or any other method of writing.
Notebook and pen for keeping a journal and practicing penmanship. Cardboard and string.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A short informal assessment will be written for each student at the end of the nine weeks.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will provide all the source material for the class, by sharing it on the screen.
