Mr. Giblin's Classroom
American Revolution cornerstone Task
Students, parents and guardians, today we started our American Revolution cornerstone task. This unit we dive into the history of North Carolina and the other twelve colonies at the start of the American Revolution. The objective for this area of study is for students to detail and explain the causes and outcomes of the American Revolution. To demonstrate that understanding, students will be working on creating an original speech in support or against the Patriot cause. at the start of the war in 1776. We will have at least three levels to this writing task and all will be given ample amount of opportunity to work on their writing in class. Our anchor text(s) will be the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense and a pro-Loyalist sentiment document. We will have close readings, graphic organizers, and deep analysis to assist in student understanding. Students were given a document that will help them with this very important quarter two task. Please email with any questions or concerns about this task.
