This is a one page assignment that asks your students about an exciting pre-Revolution event in colonial Boston. The Boston Massacre has always been a tantalizing title for my students. But, was it really a massacre?
This handout gives students the definition of "massacre" and provides facts of the event. Students then respond to the question "Was the Boston Massacre truly a massacre?" In their response, students must include facts from the handout to prove their opinion. This assignment can lead to rich discussion!
Thanks for stopping by!
I would love to hear from you when you have a moment.
