CMS students learn about American Revolution

Campbellsville Middle School eighth-graders are studying how the United States of America was formed.

 

In teaching a lesson about the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence, eighth-grade social studies teacher Robbilyn Speer compared the political upheaval during that time period to a couple ending their relationship.

 

Speer told students about how the thirteen American colonies rejected British rule, similar to how people in a relationship might argue.

 

And the Declaration of Independence, she told students, is comparable to a breakup letter.

 

As an activity to go with the lesson, Speer asked to students to write about something or someone who rules over them.
