Spark the emotions of students who live under a government that decides their fate for them, without representation or consent. Excellent opening activity to the American Revolution! For more intense reactions, do not tell students that this article is fake until the very end - the article will spark genuine and relevant emotions toward wanting to change government, a perfect introduction to the American Revolution! Suggested methods:
- Introduce the article and have students read it silently [or you read aloud]
- Engage the students by discussing their initial reactions
- Direct their feelings toward a legitimate solution or path of action
- Transition their feelings into a conversation about the colonists and being oppressed by King George III!]
