The American Revolution: Moving West and South

Students examine several letters to the editor from both a local newspaper and national newspapers. After reviewing current letters, they write a letter to the editor of an 18th-century newspaper expressing their opinion about the American Revolution. Letters are exchanged with classmates for peer review before turning in a final draft.
