Students complete an 11 item graphic organizer with 3 questions to compare and contrast the Revolutionary War and French Revolution. They then read, analyze, and compare and contrast each country's national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner and La Marseillaise, by answering 14 questions of varying degrees of difficulty. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample graphic organizer items and questions include:
--1 long term cause
--3 events which helped determine outcome
--2 governments to emerge from each revolution
--Which revolution made more of an impact on the world at the time? Explain your opinion.
--Describe what it would have meant to the Americans fighting to see, “that our flag was still there.”
--Using evidence from the text as support, identify how F. S. Key might feel about his country.
--In your own words, what has the blood done in the 3rd stanza?
--Who was behind the “tyranny” and why were citizens encouraged to grab their weapons?
--Compare and contrast the tone and emotion evoked from each anthem.
