Howdy Folks! Welcome to American History!
  
   We have a lot of things coming our way (besides the holidays. In the next 4 weeks we will be learning a variety of things. Here is what is on the agenda for the next few weeks.
We will be reviewing chapter 4 and continuing on to chapter 5 and discovering how and why America gained it independence.
     
    We will have the opportunity to analyze famous documents such as, the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Paine's pamphlet "Common Sense", The Articles of Confederation, and of course the Constitution of the United States. In addition to these items we will be having a wonderful debate on the whether America should be independent or remain Loyal to Britain. Famous guest speakers such as Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Hutchinson, General Cornwallis, Samuel Adams, and even the King of England himself, his royal highness George the III amy be seen in the debate.
  
    We have lots of work to do and hopefully will have a great deal of fun! Remeber put on your thinking caps and most of all relax and enjoy yourself.
