Students read Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech, answer 12 questions of varying degrees of difficulty, compete 3 creative tasks, and analyze 4 images by responding to academic and creative prompts. This could work for a sub! Answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
--In this context, what does "one of awful moment" mean?
--Why was there a risk that it was just an illusion?
--Under what circumstances would he consider himself guilty of treason?
--Identify where in the text Patrick Henry says Parliament is not taking the patriots seriously and is stringing them along.
--If you were an undecided colonist in 1775, would this speech persuade you to join the Patriot’s cause, side with the Loyalists, or remain undecided? Thoroughly explain your reason why you made said choice.
