2) Complete a graphic organizer that forces students to compare the different perspectives of what happened on that bloody day in 1770.
3) Complete a comparison sensory figure: Colonists V. Redcoats
Essential Question
"Based on the evidence, should the colonists have classified the events of March 5, 1770 as a "massacre" and allowed themselves to use this event as a contributing justification for war on their king? Were the colonists over-exaggerating?"
