Advanced Content: (1st and 2nd)  We used today to read and craft SS theme based paragraphs supporting the prologue and chapter 1 of To Be a Slave.

On Level:  We reviewed the causes of the American Revolution as they impacted Georgia: French and Indian War, Proclamation of 1763 and the Stamp Act.  We watched the first half of America Story of US Episode 3: Revolution and took notes on the first half of the video.

 

If you haven’t turned in your outline notes for the textbook chapter Road to Revolution, you can still do so with a penalty.  It’s wise to finish as we have an open notes quiz soon.
