 History 8 – big Questions
• What freedoms do we
  desire and/or need?

• Which is the
  government’s job, to
  protect individual rights
  or the common good?

• What is your role in our
  country?
               History 8
• ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS
 – Each unit is driven by one or
   two open-ended questions.
 – All that we study is geared
   toward developing the answer.
• DAILY QUESTIONS
 – Instead of a formal written
   objective, I pose a question to
   the students at the start of
   each class – their job is to
   figure out the answer.
                 Essential Question

against abusive governments?
1. LIMIT the GOVERNMENT
