The next few weeks of the unit will focus on identifying the causes the led up to the Revolutionary War. We will analyze primary sources to understand how perspective affects how events are told. We will also continue with close reading to research a historical figure during the Revolutionary War. Our Writing objective will be to write an opinion essay supporting that the historical figure researched was either a hero or not a hero of the Revolutionary War.
We will begin Topic 6 on Wednesday after going over the Topic 5 test. Topic 6 is learning how to multiply decimals.
