Reflection: Pacing Timeline of the War - What Made Them Keep Fighting? - Section 3: Independent Practice


I originally gave them 20 minutes but we extended it by 10 more because some groups needed more time and had more extensive events occur in their year. I also told some to get more paper for their summaries for this same reason. Some didn't complete their drawings or get the opportunity to color them but I will give them extra time tomorrow to finish this part.

This is a longer lesson that could easily be split between two days to give them enough time to complete it thoroughly. If you chose to do this I would have them begin the note taking on their reading on the first day and complete the writing of the summaries and their drawings on the second day. You could have them share after this to improve student recollection of the information.

Objective: SWBAT...determine the major events of the Revolutionary War and explain using key details to show how these turning points affected the outcome

Big Idea: Both sides had belief in the cause they were fighting for - and both sides had belief that they would win. Sharing and summarizing helps us realize how when times got tough it was the leadership and the group unity that helped them persevere.
