7/8th graders finished their argument writing about which actions are justified in a revolution and which are not. The evidence for this writing piece came from the research we did about a social, political, or cultural movement from history or today. Step one for this writing was creating an outline using the information from our research. We used the organizer below to gather our thoughts before beginning the formal writing process.
While some of us were at the museum, others were lucky enough to be able to meet with Mrs. Mary Wood, daughter of Darrell Hoyt who wrote a comprehensive history of Orleans called Sketches of Orleans, Vermont, We have used Mr. Hoyt's book in our research already. Mrs. Wood brought in some of her father's resources and shared her own knowledge about Orleans with us. She was a great source of information, and we thank her for her time!
