This assignment has your students read over the ten articles of the Treaty of Paris of 1783 that ended the American Revolution. Students will be expected to summarize each of the ten articles in a tweet (140 characters or less). Not only do your students get practice in primary source analysis, their skills in summarizing main points will be assessed. This is one very important Common Core skill! This activity works well individually, in pairs, or small groups.
My students really enjoyed this activity and included some really creative usernames and #hashtags. We cut the worksheets up and posted some of the best responses around the classroom!
