In this Google Expedition students will begin to examine the foundations of American liberty and the differing points of view expressed by people who were on the same side in the Revolutionary War. Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were both ardent patriots, but their writings show differences between them as well as similarities. Through analyzing primary sources in conjunction with the Expedition, students will get a firsthand view of how those with very different ideals had the same interest in American freedom.
Students will be able to:
*develop a clear understanding of different viewpoints presented in primary sources
*compare and contrast the ideas expressed in two primary sources
*demonstrate their skills through a class discussion, a Venn diagram, and an exit card
