- Compare and contrast the views of loyalists and patriots
Day in Review:
Today we wrapped up our discussion regarding loyalists and patriots. Using the primary sources we have used in the previous two classes we constructed essays comparing and contrasting the views and analyzing the arguments.
Assignments and Resources:
Students wrote a mini-essay where they compared and contrasted the arguments of the loyalists and the patriots. In the essay students were expected to describe the arguments of each side, analyze the arguments and determine which was most convincing, and finish by urging readers to take one side or the other. The assignment is a minimum of three paragraphs long.
