CHY 4U 2014: My Idea of Fun Usually Involves Primary Source Documents

Today, we will examine three primary source documents from the French Revolution. Our goal is to answer the following questions for each document:

  1. How is this document consistent with the values of the Revolution?
  2. Which words, phrases, or arguments indicate that France has been fundamentally changed?
  3. Which sentences and/or arguments indicate that the Revolution’s “pendulum” may be swinging in ways that the early revolutionaries may not have intended?

We will attempt to bring all of our ideas together with a good ol’ fashioned jigsaw.
