Assignment

Task:

You will be creating a timeline of the events leading to the American Revolution on Prezi. From the list below, you need to pick the five events you think had the most impact on the colonist’s drive for Independence. For each of the five events you choose, you must include the date it occurred, a definition or explanation of the event, how the colonists reacted to the event, and an analysis of the impact the event had on the push for independence. In addition to the required information, you must also include at least two different artifacts of the event (historic image, video clip, document, etc…). Your presentation needs to begin with a summary of the topic at hand (the American Revolution) and end with a reflection on the Revolution (big picture, alternative history, etc…). In order to receive credit you must include a works cited in your Prezi.   Due Date: Friday, November 6th 2015
