Classes Please do the following in class today, what you do not finish you are required to do for homework:
After watching the BrainPop – American Revolution & Schoolhouse Rock – Shot Heard Round the World. Read to yourself the following sections in your textbook:
• Patriot Advantages p. 164
• Gaining Allies (France & Spain) p. 172—173
• Winter at Valley Forge p. 173-174
• Why the Americans Won p. 186
Now that you have seen two short flicks and read some important information --- I want you to write two paragraphs (6-8 sentences) about how would you describe the Revolutionary War?
This is not an easy assignment, nor do I want you to copy exactly every word from the textbook…Think big picture.
These two paragraphs are due tomorrow and is a QUIZ grade, Thursday October 21!
