You have an in class assignment today. You will have choice of three distinct topics dealing with the American Revolution, found in your textbook Chapters 5 and 6. Pick one of the three topics in the text and write a brief summary of the topic. Then you are to write about your perceptions on the topic and why you believe it is an important item to understand about U.S. History. You will be assessed by historical accuracy. You need to post nothing greater than 2 paragraphs. The first paragraph is the summary, the second paragraph is to be your perceptions. You are to post this assignment to my weblog as a post to this thread (aka, comment). Remember to make sure your log in is in the form of first name, last initial (example: Matthew E.) I will know who you are. I will compare absentee list to the list of those who submit and date stamp. Late entries will not be accepted without prior approval. This should be an easy A for a classwork/homework grade. Sidenote: your hcpslink grades are up to date. When done, simply work at your desk quietly and deliberate on your thesis for your HI.
