How many of you started to get a feeling that what Mr. Armstrong had you doing wasn't right?
Why is what I was doing wrong?
Was I violating your rights?
If so, what rights was I abusing?

Review 5th grade American History and see how much you are able to recall of the events from 1763 - 1774 (Proclamation 1763, Stamp Act, Quartering
Act, Townshend Acts, Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, Intolerable Acts).

After students have looked through the pages, have them go back to page 63 and just using the images, ask the students if what they see in the image is
evidence in support of the colonists revolt against Great Britain or if its evidence for the British to use force against the colonists.
...the delegates agreed to send a
respectful message to King
George...[urging] the king to
consider their complaints and
recognize their rights.
First Continental Congress
(1774)
In 1774, the colonists are considering making the decision to separate from England and declare their independence. Some are loyalists who prefer not to
separate, some are undecided like George Washington, and others are strong in the belief to separate like Patrick Henry, Sam Adams, and John Adams.

Rights of Englishmen

Traditional rights of all English &


British subjects achieved through
various stages of English history
(Armstrong)
The rights the colonists are referring to are their rights as Englishmen and they refer to rights that Englishmen had steadily acquired over time.

Our goal this week is to identify exactly what those rights were. Where can they be found? If we cant nd them, then how can we say our rebellion against
Great Britain was justied?

Where do we have proof of evidence that the colonists actually had these rights to begin with?

Pass out and read Magna Carta handout.
Go back to what you learned about the European feudal system to understand these rights. Who had all of the power? Who made the laws? Who decided
punishments and judgements? Who decided taxes and war? Divine Right of Kings

Did the American colonists have the right to


rebel?

Prepare arguments for Fridays Seminar

We are seeking to nd out whether or not the colonists were justied in their rebellious actions against Great Britain. In order to determine whether they
had to right to rebel, we rst have to identify

#1 - What specic rights did the colonists possess?
#2 - How were those rights being violated?
#3 - Did the violations justify rebellion?


We are in search of the specic rights colonists claimed to have and then once we identify those rights, determine whether or not the colonists were

Rights of Englishmen

Basic rights of all British subjects

English History

Stage 1: Magna Carta (1215)
(Armstrong)
To prove if that was true or not we traveled back in time to 1215.

Provide more context...if an American were to get on a rocket ship and travel to planet Mars to live, we would still be an American? Would they still have
the same rights as they did on planet Earth (freedom of speech, freedom of press, religion, etc.) --Rights of Americans

Rights of Englishmen during the 15th century is the same. The new world is like a foreign planet Mars at this time.

Magna Carta (1215)
With the people you are sitting with, recall the story of King John.

What was the problem with King John and his nobles?
What were some of the rights the nobles thought they had more of a say in? Taxes and going o# to war.

We began to review the Magna Carta yesterday and we soon discovered that the nobles were asking for much more than the right to have a say in taxes or
going to war. With the new people you are sitting with, compare your interpretations of the Magna Carta

Rights of Englishmen
Review the new circumstances of government as a result of the Magna Carta.
As a result of the Magna Carta, the divine right of kings is gone and now the king has to consult and get consent (permission) from a certain group of
people in order to gain acceptance and cooperation of his people (People in this inference refers just to the Nobles).

George Washington is the man sent out to establish a British presence in the Ohio River Valley. Surveyor who determines the area to build a British fort.
Washington had been sent out at the same time as the French had been taking over Fort Prince George w/ the mission to establish a roadway that would allow a greater
number of troops & military equipment to travel as well as oversee the construction of Fort Prince George and establish a British presence in the area. He had set up a
camp not far from Fort D when a friendly Indian guide (Half-King) comes into camp and warns Washington of a French scouting party nearby.
Led by their Indian guides, Washington discovers the French scouting party and attacks. Kills 10 French soldiers and takes hostage 21 others including the French party
commander. As Washington interrogates the French commander (Jumonville) the Indian leader (Half-King) unexpectedly goes up and strikes Jumonville dead.

French are going to send a detachment against Washington from Forth Duquesne.

France surrenders a large portion of its claim in North America as a result of losing the war and now the western border of the colonies isnt the Appalachian mountains,
its the Mississippi River.

Read last paragraph on Hart 65, Americans were thrilled with this victory.
Even with Washingtons actions, the British were still able to defeat the French and the colonists have never felt so proud of being British.

Identify the major problems Great Britain faced after winning the French & Indian War. Do you agree or disagree with the British decision to ban colonists from settling on
the western frontier after the French and Indian War? Why?

British leaders are fearful of additional ghting that will take place if colonists keep moving into new lands. They also want to keep the colonists in one ares so that they
could be more easily taxed.

Think of the economic condition of America today after ghting a war for a decade.

Seminar: Have students identify all of the arguments/reasons Great Britain has for placing taxes or soldiers on colonists living in America. Students should
be able to rattle them the arguments and reasons o# based on the research they have written down in their notebook. When someone mentions one they
have, check it o#. If someone mentions one they dont have, write it in. Students may want to also ip through Hart 66 - 73 to nd additional reasons for
including an army in the colonies or for placing taxes on colonists.
Did the colonists have the right to rebel against
Great Britain?

Have students exchange notebooks with classmates to examine their style as well as assess them based on the work completed in their notebook.

In pods, have half of the pod be British and the other half be colonists. Colonists speak rst for 60 seconds based on the arguments they identied as
being their best in their notebook. Next, give the British :30 seconds to refute the colonists argument. Then give them an additional :60 seconds to make
their other points. Allow the colonists to give their :30 refutation to the the British perspective. Finally allow students :90 seconds of open argument and
debate.

"Our client has asked us to defend him in a court of law (George Washington). He is being charged with inciting illegal rebellion against England in the
colonies. Our client claims that he is innocent and that it is actually Great Britain who is violating his rights as an Englishman. He has laid out numerous
violations of his and other colonists rights stemming the Proclamation Act of 1763, to the Quartering Act, to the Battle at Lexington and Concord. We need
to analyze these events and choose which three are historical events we want to use to defend our client.

representation.

Parliaments authority doesnt count in the

be rightfully governed by Parliament. The
colonies are self-governed and they elect their

Closing Argument

An attention getting hook at the opening


(quote, statistic, question).

Summarization of your main arguments as


to why the colonists had the right to rebel
against Great Britain as a result of the
Magna Carta, English Bill of Rights, Salutary
Neglect, etc.
Closing Argument

Exploit the weakness in the British


argument. Why does Parliament's authority
NOT extend to British citizens living in the
colonies?
Closing Argument

Conclude your closing statement with


strength and an emotional appeal that
engages your audience. Use vivid emotive
language. Reiterate your theme that
England violated the colonists rights as
Englishmen and therefore, George
Washington should be acquitted (found not
guilty).
