Why Lesson Planet?
Students identify the qualities of an effective military leader. In this Revolutionary War lesson, students view several Internet resources about George Washington's life. Student groups research one of four battles, and document their findings. Students make inferences about the traits of a good military leader and, based on examples of these characteristics, determine if Washington was a great general or a "brilliant revolutionary."
