Product Description
Students read 9 quotes from different points of view related to whether or not the 13 Colonies should be independent from Great Britain prior to, and during, the Revolutionary War (American Revolution) and answer 20 questions. They then analyze 3 images by responding to 4 creative and academic prompts. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub! The quotes range from 1763-1779 and the historical spelling and grammar has been preserved for authenticity.

Sample questions include:
—Why do you think Paine issued such a challenge? Why weren’t all the colonists on the same page about fighting for independence?

—Why were the actions Patriots were attempting to take considered a “duty to mankind?” Why did what was happening in the colonies mean anything, or matter, to people in other parts of the world?
—Do you think Inglis' statement, reminding colonists that all parties involved were Britons, would have been strong enough to change anyone’s mind, or stance on the issue at hand?
— Frederick Mackenzie’s quote can be interpreted as if he were a Loyalist and as if he were a Patriot. Write a third sentence to add to his quote, one to make it clear that he was a Loyalist, and one to make it clear that he was a Patriot.
—What point of view does Lee take and cite the evidence from the text that supports your answer.
—Discuss why the Slaves’ petition needed to be raised. What parallels can you draw between the sentiments of the slaves and the sentiments of the Patriots against the British.
—Which quote best supports the “yes independence” point of view and why?
—Which quote best supports the “no independence” point of view and why?
