This lesson is written with the new C3 Social Studies standards in mind. Students love this activity that helps them really relate to the issues of taxation that angered the British colonists in America. It involves real-world application, research, debate and writing a persuasive letter. I've created a graphic organizer for students to use while researching and a separate graphic organizer for them to use to organize their debate arguments. I have also included a writing prompt that is print-ready.
