Students will work in groups assigned by the teacher.
Each group must do all three chapters of the textbook (History Alive! 5, 6, 7).
Divide the chapters up, each person taking an equal number of sections.
Create a document in Drive and indicating who is doing what section, share it with Ms B!
The group leader is responsible for making sure everyone knows what section they must cover.
Each person is responsible for completing their share of the work.
As a group decide on section(s) that you would like to teach one lesson on. It should be a section that is very significant, important in understanding why the colonists decided to fight for independence.
