Today in class we begin on the final stage of our journey before the American Colonies become a United America. Our focus today will be on the specific events that led us to the Revolutionary War. Below is the power point we will use in class, the homework, and also a Permission Slip for a Movie we will watch in class tomorrow. It is very important to get this signed and brought back tomorrow because you don't want to do the alternative assignment... the movie is way better. ;)
FIRST Get this signed! It is a Movie Viewing Permission Slip for the Movie we are watching tomorrow in class, "Independence". It is an episode from the HBO Miniseries called "John Adams" and is truly interesting to watch.
Lastly, You will need to use the online textbook to complete this assignment. If you absolutely have no way to access the internet, I will help you figure something out in order to complete said assignment.
To access your online textbook, simply go to the "American History I" main page on this website and follow the instructions there. Very simple and it even has pictures! :) Just read the pages assigned and complete the chart.
