Rosenwald’s Fourth Graders Learn About the American Revolution

Rosenwald’s Fourth Graders Learn About the American Revolution

Rosenwald’s fourth grade class has been actively engaged in working on finishing up their American Revolution unit over the past few weeks. The learning targets state that students will be able to conduct a short research project from either the Patriot or Loyalist point of view to answer the question: Was the Revolutionary War a War of Freedom or Treason? The first step for students was to choose a side, aligning with either the Patriots or the Loyalists.

Once they had chosen their position, research was done to support their position for the debate that would follow.  This was students’ first experience debating with their peers and it went wonderfully well! Students were all very enthusiastic and genuinely thrilled to have the opportunity to craft their arguments and support their positions with research.
