Product Description
The Boston Tea Party is well known for protesting the Tea Act of 1773, but it was in Philadelphia where the rebellious spirit against the newest tea tax began. Students will read a persuasive letter written by Philadelphians to a tea ship captain from London in which they threaten tarring and feathering should he unload the detested cargo. The primary source is followed by text-dependent questions, including an analysis of the persuasive techniques used by the Philadelphians.

Please read and understand the Terms of Use on the last page of the preview.

Don’t worry about compatibility! A common problem with editable resources is wonky text. This is a result of the original creator using fonts that you do not have on your computer. To avoid this problem, this resource is created using the common fonts of Arial and Georgia. Additionally, the PowerPoint version is saved as a 97-2003 Presentation, which is compatible with versions 1997 and up.

New to using PowerPoint for printable lessons? I used to be a Word user and found the transition very easy. If you find that you still need some support, reach out with an email and I’d be happy to help!

* If you purchase a resource and later decide to buy a bundle that also includes that resource, you can receive a full refund for your single item, if purchased within a year of the bundle. Submit your refund request to TpT here.
