Students in the 8th grade spent five weeks studying The American Revolution in social studies and language arts through an inter-disciplinary unit. First, in Mr. Tagg’s social studies classes, students studied the Enlightenment, Colonial Dissatisfaction and other factors that led to the Declaration of Independence. Students then studied the Revolutionary War, up through the signing of the Treaty of Paris. The unit continued into Mrs. Tagg’s language arts classes, where students researched the life and times of a soldier during the Revolutionary War, created a fictional character from that research, and developed and wrote a letter home from the perspective of that soldier. Students then completed a creative extension activity of their choosing which included paintings, 3D models, power points, parchment letters, poems, and even a life-sized George Washington! The unit concluded with students presenting their projects to their classmates.
