This is your chance to have a student-led activity in your classroom! The American Revolution is the perfect opportunity to allow your students to share their debate abilities through a Socratic Debate or a Fishbowl Activity. Should the Americans be independent?? Allow your students to take the role as a colonist or a loyalist/ Member of Parliament. This handout includes instructions, primary documents, student worksheet, and a rubric. You will love this and your kids will too. Also, so will your supervisor. And your administrator. And you might just be placed in your school newspaper for such a great activity. I'm not kidding.
