Product Description
Help your students discover the delightful sassiness of our Founding Mother and Father, Abigail and John Adams, with this interactive assignment. Students work in pairs (mixed gender pairs can be especially fun for this assignment) to "translate" excerpts of letters from Abigail and John Adams into a more modern form: text messages. Your students will be having so much fun creating a text Battle of the Sexes that they won't even realize that they're engaging with difficult text as they read and decode what has become a foundational document of American democracy.

Useful for history courses, but also for ELA teachers working on Common Core/nonfiction reading comprehension skills. Advanced students will be able to zip through this as an engaging warm-up to a larger lesson about women's voting rights, or the goals of the Continental Congress. With lower-skilled readers and ESL students, this assignment, along with a warm-up, debrief, and exit ticket, can take up one class period. Included at the end is a "summary" assignment that can be used as an exit ticket or homework assignment.
