Betrayal

This inquiry leads students through an investigation of leaders during the American Revolution.  By investigating the compelling question “Is betrayal always bad?” students evaluate the actions of King George III and George Washington.  The formative performance tasks build on knowledge and skills through the course of the inquiry and help students understand the motives of patriots and loyalists.  For the summative task, students create an evidence-based argument about whether the act of betrayal is always bad.
