Students will understand one of the major events of the American Revolution, the Tea Act and Boston Tea Party by reading, annotating, and answering guiding questions with at least 7.5 out of 9 questions correct. 

Standards:


CA HSS.8.1 - Understand the major events preceding the founding of the nation.

Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
Re-write today's objectives in your own words. What are the activities you will be completing and how will you know whether or not you met today's objectives? 

Whole Group (Voice Level 0) 10 minutes: 


Introduction to the Tea Act, Boston Tea Party, and Prominent Patriots on Pear Deck. Students will need to respond to questions throughout the short presentation. 

Independent (Voice Level 0) 40 minutes: 

Task 1: Achieve3000, "American Revolution: Never Forgotten". You need to complete all 5 tabs for this article. 

- You only need to summarize paragraphs that are more than two sentences! You may write your summaries as bullet points for my class. 

- Your thought question answer only needs to be 3-4 sentences. 

- Achieve articles are summative grades. You cannot get higher than an NP if you did not summarize. Yes you need to summarize the Dig Deeper section! In order to complete a "makeup Achieve" you need to also complete all 5 tabs and the summaries on your makeup article as well. 


Task 2: Complete the close reading activity about the Tea Act and Boston Tea Party in Google Classroom. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes I met this objective because I completed all five tabs for the article, summarized everything including the dig deeper, and I scored 88% on the activity!" 

Collaborative (Voice Level .5 - 1) 40 minutes: 

We will be completing guiding annotations on primary and secondary sources for the Boston Tea Party. There are three sources that we will be looking at today, and just like last week we are going to do a gradual release of responsibility (GRR) for these annotations. 



Document B Instructions: 
1. Read the document aloud at your table 
2. Discuss and highlight 2 key details (one per paragraph would be a good idea!) 
3. Make at least 1 note on the side. Don't know what to write? Consider answering these questions: How does this document support what the background essay and Doc A said? If you could summarize this document in 2-8 words, what would you say? Do you have any questions for the author? 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes, I met the objective because I was able to annotate and I am confident I answered at least 8 of the 9 questions correctly." 

Exit Ticket (Voice Level 0) 2 minutes: 
Somewhere on your objective reflection sheet, please answer the following question: Do you think the Patriots did the right thing by dumping all of the tea into the harbor? Why or why not? 

Homework: 
Complete the close reading activity about the Tea Act and Boston Tea Party in Google Classroom.
