Focus: The American Revolution focuses on the disagreements about principles of government which led the colonists in North America to seek independence from Great Britain. The causes, major figures, and consequences of the American Revolution provide a framework for understanding what caused the colonies to break away and become an independent nation, and what significant ideas and values were at the heart of the American Revolution. Students will review the stages of the writing process and engage in an extended writing project. This unit also provides explicit instruction in reading, writing, morphology, grammar, and spelling.
