Description

American Revolution - Famous Phrases. The American Revolution can be an exciting time for students to learn about because heroes stepped forward and there was a struggle between the upper hand and the underdog, but it can be overwhelming for students because of how much there is to cover. However, with pictures and stories students are able to get a firmer grip of this fascinating time period because of what was said, who said it, why it was said, and the impact that it had within the story of the American Revolution. And most importantly, did these people really say these phrases at all?!?

Included in this package are 15 famous people from the American Revolution who said something that was powerful at the time and still resonates in our minds today. The phrases are to be found by students using whatever research methods you decide on.

The 15 Phrases are accompanied by two different writing tasks of your choice:

Option #1 is set up for students to identify what was being said in the bubble captions, explain what the phrase means, and explain what was happening during the revolution that led to the phrase being said.

Option #2 is more advanced in terms of students choosing two of the phrases that have been discovered and identify key words, find synonyms that could have been used, identify what the words mean, and write a critical analysis as to whether or not they believe the phrase is a valid and meaningful part of American History.

The Phrases Included:

Patrick Henry - "If this be treason, make the most of it!"

John Paul Jones - "I have not yet begun to fight!"

Nathan Hale - "My only regret is I only have one life to give for my country."

John Hancock - "There! His majesty can no read my name without glasses!"

James Otis - "A man's house is his castle."

Thomas Paine - "These are the times that try men's souls."

John Parker - "Don't fire unless fired upon. But if they mean to have a way, let it begin here."

Israel Putnam/William Prescott - "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes!"

Benjamin Franklin - "We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."

Thomas Jefferson - "...life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"

George Washington - "Tell General Sullivan to use the bayonet. I am resolved to take Trenton."

John Adams - "Facts are stubborn things."

Paul Revere - "The regulars are coming!"

Paul Revere - "One if by land, two if by sea."

Patrick Henry - "Give me liberty, or give me death!
