This is a neat writing assignment about what a newspaper might look like in Boston during the Revolutionary War. One article says that the Colonists are out of control, and is meant to be a perspective piece told from the British side about the Boston Tea Party. The other article is called Murder in the Streets and is meant for students to write about the Boston Massacre from the colonists perspective.
This assignment should be done after teaching both the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. It is perspective taking with historical facts.
