What Caused the American Revolution? - D Block

April 8, 2011

My honors freshmen students have a lot going on right now.  Not only are they in the middle of a new unit covering the American Revolution, they are in the midst of the largest research project any of them has ever attempted.  I decided that today, a Friday, they needed a relaxed class period to regroup from all the intense work they have been dutifully producing. revolutionarywar2.jpg

So today we created a new podcast episode for you!  They wrote poems, some serious and well written, others silly and funny, about the causes of the American Revolution.It gave them an opportunity to review the information that will be on an upcoming quiz and laugh together in small groups.

I hope you enjoy the results!

    These poems are great! They are clever and interesting, entertaining and funny. What a fun and creative way for students to share their knowledge of the American Revolutionary War. Thanks for sharing with parents, and congrats on a job well-done! Mrs. Rubin
