King George III portrait


In this lesson you have used 5 primary sources and 2 secondary sources which support or refute the British right to tax its American colonies following the French and Indian War. You were asked to use the documents to decide whether or not you believe that the British had the right to tax and then to support your beliefs with evidence in a group debate.

Did you have enough information to inform your opinion?

What additional evidence do you think would have helped?

Reflect on the arguments you heard in the group debate and consider your original argument, would you change it or not?

Explain why you would or would not change your original opinion.
